Muscle Maker Grill, which opened across from Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington Station last year, has closed.

The franchise eatery occupied a little freestanding building that previously hosted Gimme 2,  Greek Captain and, before that, Starbucks. A sign on the window says the restaurant has “moved” to Amityville.

The concept here was lean protein-based eating, with calories provided for every menu item. On a visit last October, I wasn’t too pleased with the artificial-tasting “MM” signature wrap (550 calories) with grilled chicken, turkey bacon and reduced fat Cheddar. My companion’s Cajun chicken and penne pasta (330 calories), while salty, made for somewhat better eating.

Muscle Maker Grill  is at 80 Merrick Rd., Amityville 631-464-4277.

There are also locations in Long Beach, Merrick and East Meadow; find them at
