Somewhere between the East River and the desolate warehouses that line many of Long Island City's streets, there is a small place called LIC Market that serves delicious food and provides a relaxed escape from the industrial presence in the area.
We arrived for Sunday brunch and were seated almost immediately. LIC Market has a folksy type of atmosphere; very small, welcoming, and charming. The actual dining area is comfortable, bright, and decorated cutely. Our waitress was friendly and our meals were served quickly. To start off the meal, you are provided with a few different types of complimentary pastries and bread which include chocolate filled rugelach, a delicious carrot cake, and regular bread with butter. They all tasted fresh and it was a nice addition to our meal.
I'd never tried chicken liver before, but I figured I would try it here as they offer a chicken liver hash plate. I was not disappointed, but I can't really compare it to anything else I've ever eaten. Regardless, the presentation was great and the meal was enjoyable. My girlfriend ordered the frittata of the day and she also enjoyed it.
Very good experience overall, however, we couldn't believe the price for a mimosa. $8?! Is that what they go for nowadays?
We would absolutely eat here again. Looking forward to trying the market burger or the roasted chicken for lunch or dinner.
Parking can be a hassle in this area. We drove around for about 10 or 15 minutes before finding a spot, but I think this is partly due to the fact that they were filming Gossip Girls in the area, leaving many vacant spots marked with a temporary "No Parking" sign.
