This a French cafe in Queens from the people behind Casa Enrique, and it's pretty average. But that’s what makes it so special. You come here for plain, un-fancy French food, and the best part is, it isn’t trendy. There’s something soothing about that. The other Cafe Henri in Greenwich Village is closed now, but you can still get some crepes and a sandwich at this one.

Adda is a great casual Indian restaurant in Long Island City, and you should be planning a trip here for some curry and cheesy naan.
M. Wells Steakhouse
If you live in this area, or you find yourself here often, M. Wells is a decent spot for a nice dinner. You can even follow it up with a drink at Dutch Kills for a pleasant, albeit expensive, evening in Queens. Unfortunately, that’s as weird as things are gonna get. Queens.
John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.

The Modern is really two different experiences: the bar, and the dining room. Here’s what you need to know about both.
Around since 1980, The Odeon is a New York City classic. It may not be the same downtown destination that it was thirty years ago, but they still serve very respectable bistro food and stiff drinks, and brunch is always reliable.
Suggested by our writers
Casa Enrique is home to the best Mexican food in New York City, and we bet you’ve never heard of it. Time to get acquainted with Long Island City.
While the burger and the brunch menu are great, the rest of the menu at Cafe Colette falls short.
