Miracle Grill in Park Slope Bites the Dust
Another mediocre restaurant has passed away, according to several reports. Miracle Grill, located in the accursed 3rd Street and 7th Avenue location (southwest corner), has served up its last burrito.
Years ago, that spot was home to Minsky's, which was the last place that seemed to be even moderately successful in that location. SInce Minksy's closed, that spot has had a succession of unsuccessful restaurants, including Rex's, Cuzco, Nam and a couple of others I've forgotten.
Cannot help but wonder what's next...
In the category of "rumor": something from the 2nd St. Cafe people.
Rex's...wow...had lunch there al fresco the day my daughter was born at Methodist....1990.
Every restaurant after Minsky's and before Miracle Grill (Rex, the Vietnamese, Malaysian and Peruvian places) were all owned by the family responsible for such abominations as Lemongrass Grill and Fuji San, among others.

Yeah, that Chicken place really sucks too. A lot of failed restaurants, but for some reason people love the abysmal Lemongrass. The father originally had Fuji San & Rex, then the son started opening restaurants (including Lemongrass). They're Malaysian-Chinese and also own Jaya in Chinatown (which is supposed to be OK). I think they also started Pita Pan, then Ali from Mr. Falafel bought them out (too bad he uses tortilla wraps for the sandwiches).
