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.

TAK Room is on the fifth floor of the giant mall at Hudson Yards, and it’s a very expensive place to eat some pretty good American food.
Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.
Suggested by our writers
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.
Red Hook Tavern
Red Hook Tavern is from the people behind Hometown Bar-B-Que, and it’s a great spot to sit at the bar, drink wine, and eat an extremely good burger.
