On the first truly warm evening of the year, a friend & I attempted to eat a late (10:30pm) dinner at the 1st Ave outpost of Miracle Grill. The host snappishly informed us that there was a 90-minute wait for a garden table, so we proposed sitting inside at the bar.
I said, "I really don't mind eating at the bar. I just wanted an appetizer, anyway."
The host replied, "Well, you can't. Our kitchen's very small and we just have too many people in the garden. No food is being served inside." This was all said in the tone of voice one would use with a child when stating, "Because Mommy said so!"
Needless to say, we left. And I would recommend that 'hounds avoid this establishment, since their customer service is so atrocious. There are plenty of other frozen margaritas to be drunk in this city.
