LIC Market is a neighborhood utility spot where you can reliably get high-quality, uncomplicated food. It serves seasonal American, like hearty salads and vegetable sides, stews in the winter, and of course, a solid burger. The space is small - with a few bar seats up front, a dining room with two-tops, and a back patio - so come here with a friend for a casual bite and glass of natural wine. Make sure to buy a bottle of the housemade hot sauce on your way out.
