Vernon Blvd in particular was quite busy, as people were enjoying the nice day and no doubt indulging in a delicious meal. I was taken immediately with Woodbines, the new gastropub, which replaced Lounge 47. I was happy to see that the space was completely renovated, boasting high ceilings, beautiful reclaimed wood tables and what do you know…a special menu. The menu showcased a Restaurant Week promotion, which is indeed what’s going on in the nabe right now from September 15th – September 21st. Woodbine’s along with eight other restaurants in the vicinity are featuring $15 lunch and $25 dinner menus, which offer a great opportunity to try a few of them this week. The offer comes to us from the folks at the Queens Tribune who are also working on a special TV series, Best Places to Live, with an upcoming LIC episode in the works this week.
