‘Minnie’s’ to Serve up American Comfort Food at the Old Tapeo 29 Spot on Clinton Street

Posted on: June 15th, 2017 at 5:00 am by

You’ve probably been wondering about what’s happening at the northwest corner of Clinton and Stanton Streets. For the last several months, the former home of Tapeo 29 underwent a complete transformation. Inside and out, and totally under the radar, with additions like the installation of new flower beds or the leveled corner entrance and its relocation around to the Clinton side.

Here’s why. We are told that the newcomer is a restaurant called Minnie’s (though, we’re not sure the proper spelling). They’ll be serving up “American comfort food,” and chefs preparing the kitchen revealed that it should open sometime next week.

So far, though, Minnie’s hasn’t appeared before Community Board 3 for any sort of liquor license. And it’s also worth noting that Paul Stallings – owner of the Hotel on Rivington – is the landlord here.
