45–58 Vernon Blvd. Long Island City, NY 11101 | Long Island City | 718-786-5400

Location Description:

The mission at L.I.C. is simpleajust look at the windowpane outside, which reads "Cordials" and "Draughts." There's no gimmick here, just some good ol' drinking to be done: 10 beers by the bottle, another 12 on tap, and hardly any pub fare, save for grilled-cheese sandwiches for the weak in spirit. Bypass the interior and head to the backyard garden, a concrete retreat where you can while away the hours unfettered by the bustle of Manhattan. Sit back with a stein of Belgian Corsendonk ($6) in hand and just relaxayou're in Queens now, and here, what you see is what you get.
