Scorpion Grill comes to Miller Place
Serving up chili con carne and quesadillas, the new Scorpion Grill enters the Miller Place eating scene. Chef-owner John Henry described the counter-serve strip mall spot as having a loosely Southwest theme. “We’re not a burrito or taco place, although we have those on the menu,” Henry said, adding that he roasts his own chilies for the restaurant's salsa and hand cuts the fries.
A glance at the reasonably priced menu reveals a chicken, steak or ground beef taco ($2.50), a bacon-wrapped hot dog with ancho chili mayonnaise ($4), a blackened tuna platter ($10) and a chipotle ranch salad with grilled skirt steak ($8).
Scorpion Grill is at 333 Rte. 25A, Miller Place, 631-509-6700.
