After a few delays, Vinzee's Magic Fountain at 412 Court Street on the corner of First Place, finally opened this past week-end. Much anticipated (and criticized for its name and white stucco façade,) the eatery's opening coincided with filming of scenes from "Men In Black 3."
One reader wrote in to tell me: "Guess they thought it would be a good night for an opening, what with all the neighborhood out and about, gawping at the Hollywood-style action going on."
According to it's web site and Facebook page, the 'fast casual restaurant' offers an American-style menu made from "fresh ingredients provided by local distributors and our products are all eco-friendly." A few in the neighborhood tried it and reported back that the food was all right. One resident was disappointed that the place looked more like a fast food, take-out joint rather than a place to actually sit down for dinner.
Did you try it yet? How was it?
