Want a taste of the old Long Island City? Check out the place above. Take my word, you will not be running into any of your Goldman co-workers there when you ditch work early on Friday and need something greasy to cure your hangover from a very late Thursday night at Lavo. It is mostly truckdrivers, city workers, and heavy-lifting types from the nearby warehouses eating lunch at 10:30am. In other words, nobody here is on a diet. Just don’t think you are going to stop by and load up for a late night meal on your way back from the Hamptons after a weekend at Ron Perelman’s estate clubbing with his house guest Kanye. Because they are closed by 4pm and all day Sundays.
Today’s LIC news is pretty mundane and makes me miss the ire over that strip club at the bottom of the Queensboro bridge. I am also sorry to say that real estate takes the top slot once again. So you decide: Do I stay here at my desk and read LICtalk whilst pretending to analyze a potential acquisition for an IB client in Tacoma, or stand in line awaiting three scrambled with bacon and cheese?
