The Long Island Bar looks kind of like a diner from 1950, and despite its name, it’s equal parts restaurant and bar. You can either stop by and drink a few gimlets, or you can get a booth and have some grilled trout, cheese curds, or cornbread with chicken liver mousse. What you really want, though, is the burger. It has two patties, a squishy bun, and an almost excessive amount of cheese. Bring a few friends, and start your Friday night here.

The Smith Lincoln Center
That's right, another Infatuation review for yet another location of The Smith. Why? Because The Smith is always there when you need it to be. Sometimes for the food. Sometimes for the bathroom. Either way, it's there, and it's good.
Suggested by our writers
It can be annoying to deal with an unpredictable situation, but for pizza this good, we’re willing to deal with it. Brooklyn's Lucali is incredible.
Quality cocktails and more than decent food on Smith Street. Brunch is a big deal here.
