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.

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.
Beebe’s is a restaurant in the bottom of The Boro Hotel in LIC, and it’s a perfect for when you’re in the area and need something easy.

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.
