Corner Bistro’s Long Island City offshoot is very similar to the original in the West Village. The spaces look almost identical with booths and tables to the left, and a long bar with a couple TVs on the right side of the dimly lit room, and the menus are similar as well. Yes, the famous bistro burger is as big and greasy as it is at the original. The LIC spot does have a couple more options for sides, like fried pickles and buffalo wings.

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.
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.

Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
Popina is a tiny, casual restaurant on the Brooklyn waterfront. The food is a mix of Southern and Italian, and they do some great chicken and pasta.
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.

There’s something about pounding cheap beers and burgers here that makes you feel like anything is possible. When we finally decided it was go time for “Immaculate” Infatuation, we were sitting in Corner Bistro. A great burger, and a classic establishment.
The Green Street LIC
The Green Street LIC does kind-of-healthy Korean with optional Korean barbecue.
