Park Avenue Grill
Update: Park Avenue Grill has been closed since 2008.
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.

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. My dining companion got the chicken cobb salad ($7.95) which is self explanatory. 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.
