- Miss Williamsburg Diner Burns [✜]
INSIJS has the on-the-scene report of the Miss Williamsburg fire last night. According to Brooklyn Vegan, no one was hurt, and reports of damage to Monster Island are greatly exaggerated, so there is some good news in all this. As GL points out, the 718 site (it hasn't been Miss Williamsburg in ages) has been open to mischief for some time now, although as far as I know, there is no word on how the fire actually started.
I remember when MW opened (10-plus years ago?) - before they had the outdoor space. It was one of the first new eateries with any ambition, and was part of the diner renaissance at the time.
