Hibino is a casual sushi spot about a block from the 7 and G trains, so it’s a convenient option for a quick dinner or takeout on your way home. They make their own tofu in-house, and have options for non-sushi fans like teriyaki chicken. They serve affordable sushi plates, like a 15-piece sashimi platter for $21.

Adda is a great casual Indian restaurant in Long Island City, and you should be planning a trip here for some curry and cheesy naan.
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.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill
Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This place is, however, insanely expensive.
Shalom Japan is what happens when two chefs from different backgrounds (Japanese & Jewish) fall in love and start making food instead of babies.
Shuko, an unmarked Japanese spot near Union Square, is our favorite omakase experience in NYC.

John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
The Green Street LIC
The Green Street LIC does kind-of-healthy Korean with optional Korean barbecue.
