Woodbine’s is a pub, but it’s nicer, cleaner, and a little more West Elm-y than the usual place where you play darts and drink Guinness. It’s open all day, they serve a full dinner menu, and they also have live music sometimes. Plus, it’s nice enough for a date (you can grab a table in the back), and it’s a good spot to hang out and eat a burger if you ever find yourself in Long Island City.
