MIDTOWN— An A Hamburger Today reader says they had a Black Label burger at Nougatine. The folks at La Frieda however say only Minetta Tavern serves the real Black Label: "The Black Label Mix is only sold to Keith McNally and his Minetta Tavern. We have an exclusive with them!" Update: A further statement from La Frieda, for those interested: "There has been a tremendous amount of interest in the Black Label hamburger blend since it was created and added to the Minetta Tavern menu. We are sincerely flattered by the interest and high praise it has received. However, there seems to be constant stirrings that it will be featured on menus other than that of Minetta Tavern. We would like to publicly state for the record that the Black Label blend is sold exclusively at Minetta Tavern, it will not be sold elsewhere." [AHT]
