Mexican fine dining, Indian home cooking, and killer ramen are giving this low-key dining scene the attention it deserves
Restaurateurs in Long Island City are already gearing up for the impending arrival of Amazon and a subsequent influx of customers. As residents already know, however, this neighborhood had a vibrant dining scene well before the tech giant announced its decision to muscle into town.
For years, the area has been amassing a collection of sleeper farm-to-table spots, as well as standouts that lure diners from all five boroughs. From some of the best Kansas-style barbecue in New York to Michelin-starred Mexican cooking to regional Indian dishes to ramen made with Iberian pig bones, these are the places that have already made Long Island City an excellent place to dine.
