Park Avenue Grill

Update: Park Avenue Grill has been closed since 2008.

10/11/06 Update:

Despite their denial to admit it, the Park Avenue Grill is up for sale. Obviously, since they don’t go by that fruity “Mr. Wraps” name anymore, not nearly as many customers go there to watch the lackadaisical slackers make your food at overpriced rates. It may be good, but something is just not right with the scale of economy. $14 for a Roast Beef sandwich? I have to say it’s a lot better than a Quiznos, but still.

So, they inadvertently admitted they’re moving back into the old Mr. Wraps location, as soon as some individual hands over $120,000 to them for the pedsetrian and uninspiring “Grill” location. I’ve never seen less effort put into interior restaurant accomodations in my life. Yeah, it may be clean and uncluttered, but I feel like I’m in an unoccupied apartment ready to rent every time I eat there. It’s freaky in a way.

Here’s the ad from R.Fiore:

Read initial review from end of March 2006:

Quick review 3/29/2006: What was supposed to be a quick hungover snack turned out to be a new business review! Rather unimpressed with the interior, although it was clean. Just kind of plain. The kitchen didn't look like it was going to produce anything spectacular. Boy, was I wrong. I looked at the menu, and noticed some very non-standard concoctions. Didn't have time to analyze it with a fine tooth comb, so I just got this southwest burger ($6.75) which came with fries and topped with cheddar, avocado, lettuce, salsa and chipotle mayo. A yummy crisp pickle was included as well. park ave grill burger.JPG My dining companion got the chicken cobb salad ($7.95) which is self explanatory. park ave grill cobb salad chicken.JPG Much to our delight, the food was very fresh and well prepared. The burger was bigger than you'd expect and the fries were light and just crispy enough. They had other things on the menu, such as grilled pizzas, crab cakes, breakfast, special sandwiches. In addition to some dinner entrees and pasta. Park Ave. Grill is operated by the same owner as the heralded Mr. Wraps. As of 4/4/06 the grill has been temporarily closed due to "equipment failure". Hopefully nothing other than that went wrong. That's that for the quick review! I wish them luck and hope the quality of the food continues and is consistent across the menu.

[quote comment=”32257″]last night my pita grill delivery took an hour and 15 minutes, in contrast to the usual 45. they later admitted they were short by one delivery guy that night. the food finally came and they mixed up the order even though it was correct on the receipt. i ordered a greek salad with no olives. they brought a greek salad with grilled chicken, olives, and no stuffed grape leaves. i guess i got free chicken by mistake so it’s a good thing i’m not a vegetarian.
i’m looking for somewhere else that can delivery healthy salad type food in a decent amount of time. it’s greek to me and mr wraps will be getting some of my business pretty soon![/quote]

Try Ali Baba!! Great salads and I think they were at my door 10 minutes after I hung up the phone. And as for Pita Grill’s delivery issues – same thing happened to me not too long ago 😥

Of note, SaladWorks charges for delivery ($2 maybe?). But I do like their salads 🙂

yeah, 1 hour and 15 is too long (for a salad no less). try saladworks maybe, fair lily

Al fresco: sitting at a crappy aluminum table on the sidewalk, having, like, a tuna melt wrap, fries and a can of Diet Coke.

Only in Hoboken, man.

Gave them my business yesterday evening. I’ve got to say, for dining al fresco, it was pretty pleasant and off the beaten path. $9 for a wrap (overstuffed at that) and water isn’t going to break the bank either. I’ve been there before, and have witnessed acts of laziness, but the staff seemed much more attentive last night. Overall, I was pleased with my meal and overall service 🙂
