Long Island City - The Best Things to Eat

tabs | Sep 2, 2011 06:31 PM

I just spent an awesome maternity leave in LIC and ate many a breakfast/lunch/snacks in the hood while walking with my baby. Here are my favorites:
Crankys (Stroller and visiting family friendly/Flank Steak Salad and Cupcakes)
Sweetleaf (Stroller friendly too but their Soy Latte/Iced Coffee, Carrot Cake, Donut Holes, really any of their baked goods esp if made that day-homemade poptarts, ginger cookie, gluten free brownie)
Little Ovens (Gateau d' Alice, Chocolate Cakes, Guava Macaron, Macha Macaron, Vanilla Mille Feuile)
Malu (Peanut Butter and Chocolate homeade ice cream from the nicest couple ever!)
LIC Market (Slow Cooked Pork, Shredded Brisket at Lunch Soft Cooked Egg with Gruyere and Scallions on a mini baguette, Bread Basket at Brunch)
Sage (Ranchero Burrito on the softest tortilla ever)
Tournesol (Early dinner with appetizer specials and good wine outside with sleeping baby in arms never failed)
Breadbox (Egg and Cheese on a Sesame Bagel)
Maducatis Rustica (Biscotti and Conette with Apricot Jam (little croissaints,)
Testaccio (Spinach Salad and grilled Lamb Chops)
Madera Cuban (Lechon Asado)
Communitea (Tuna Melt)
M Wells (I know it's gone for now but shoutout to the BeefLamb Burger and Maple Pie)

Thanks LIC.
