Went to Spicy Mina's for dinner last night around 7:00 and all the gates were down. Does anyone know what's up?

    I live about four or five blocks away from Spicy Mina's, and it seems to me the place has been locked up every time I've passed it, day or night, since about July 1st. I actually signed onto Chowhound this morning with the intention of asking if anyone had any news or info.

      I went by there today during lunch and they are still closed. I am starting to get nervous. Mina's had become my favorite restaurant ANYWHERE. I'm totally addicted to her Special Dal Fry.

      I hope they reopen.

        That area has so little foot traffic versus 74th Street. Hopefully, if she decided to reopen it will be 74th St or 37th Ave. I know that I would be a regular. A bakery opened just two doors away and closed in less than one year. It's possible she's tired of being an owner and will become a Chef in Manhattan.

          That bakery closed b/c it was no good. I went in after eating at Mina's and their goods looked horrible.

          Mina's is in an odd spot, and they certainly were empty most of te time. If they move I hope they stay close. But I would not be suprised if they took a long trip back home.

            yes, as I recall she has been away for a long spell more than once. Hopefully she will resurface at some point.
