I don't know if anyone has posted about this sweet restaurant in LIC, but my wife and two friends had a fine meal at the Long Island City Cafe last night. It is a small place (about eight tables), but quite charming. My wife and I both had the grouper, special of the night, quite wonderful with kale and a sweet potato puree. One friend had the duck and another a shrimp dish. Everyone was greatly pleased.
Prices are reasonable and you can bring your own wine. They are open only from Wed. to Fridays for dinner and also are open for lunch. They are at 5-48 49th Avenue, just off Vernon Blvd. Telephone is (718) 361-2004.
And right across the street is the Brazilian Coffe House which serves excellent coffee and some nice muffins.
