Las Poblanitas Has Shuttered
Ahhhh shucks. Technically Las Poblanitas (38th btw. 8+9th) is out-of-bounds by a few feet, but we still claim it as a Midtown Lunch. And it definitely had all the attributes of a good ML joint: it was off the beaten path, not a salad joint, and served good, delicious Mexican food at great prices. So we were sad to hear from Lunch’er Rich this morning that it has been shuttered! One of the windows didn’t have its gate down, but it didn’t look like there was a DOH sticker in the window (and their last inspection in March was passing.) I wonder if business dropped off because of the 2 Bro’s pizza next door, which had a line 20 deep when I walked by. Sadly this closing is only temporary… but it’s not looking good.
