Just when you thought there wasn’t a single place to sate your craving for a catfish taco, Miracle Grill opens on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope. The airy space is the first Brooklyn outpost of the restaurant, which already has locations in the East Village and Murray Hill.

Since it opened in February, Miracle Grill has been dishing out southwestern-style dishes, true to its first chef, Bobby Flay, who went on to open the Mesa Grill and Bolo, two popular city eateries. In the spacious dining area with adobe walls and moody lighting, Marco Vasquez, who worked in the First Avenue location, rubs pork chops with ancho chile powder and spices up organic chicken for hearty chili.

Grilled food is the draw here, so expect your catfish, spicy chicken and all manner of fresh fish to bear the marks of a grill. (Pictured is the grilled mahi mahi topped with papaya jicama salsa over grilled vegetables.) Gathered around the bar area where old record covers and Mexican plates hang, diners sip frozen margaritas in flavors like blood orange, guava, mango and peach.

Walk by the restaurant on the weekend, and under the shady porch awning you’ll notice neighborhood families nibbling warm cornbread and lingering over big platters of eggs benedict topped with chipotle chile hollandaise, or sharing one another’s breakfast burritos filled with soft scrambled eggs, spicy chorizo sausage and scallions.

Miracle Grill (222 Seventh Ave. at Third Street in Park Slope) accepts American Express, MasterCard and Visa. Entrees: $9-$20. The restaurant serves dinner daily and brunch on weekends from 11 am to 3:30 pm. For reservations, call (718) 369-4541.
