Corner Bistro, the famous so called “bohemian” pub has a new location in Long Island City. It was not our first target there, going for some Vietnamese food, but, when we saw it, we could not resist. Opened in 1961 in the West Village, this place serves an amazing burger that some have named the best in New York. Yes, it is good for sure: the 8oz patty is tasty and juicy, sitting on a slice of onion that will enhance a bit the flavor of the meat, and squeezed between two pieces of a potato bun that seem too small to hold everything (especially when you put ketchup on it), making the experience delightfully messy. The cheese burger is a must have, but, if you like a heart attack on a plate, go for their brunch burger with bacon and a fried egg...
And if you are vegetarian, you can opt for the grilled cheese (this one is with cheddar). That is very good.
Or for the various sides they offer. The fried pickles are delicious and I did not expect to have that much on the plate. So are the fries: shoestring, crispy on the outside and cooked all the way through.
Of course, I have to mention the drinks: it is a pub, so you can get beer, sodas or like me, a mix of the two: I got a root beer that had 5.9% alcohol in it. First time I tried and not the last.
So overall, we had a nice meal there and it was really not expensive. Corner Bistro keeps its promise to satisfy diners hungry for delicious burgers. If you’ve never tried it, check it out!
Enjoy (I did)!
