The Michelin Guide has just released its 2015 “Bib Gourmand” picks and Alobar and John Brown Smokehouse (10-43 44th Drive) were among the picks for the best value for money.
These two restaurants were the only Long Island City restaurants to receive the highly-coveted prize. Restaurants are evaluated for excellence on a budget (defined as two courses and wine or dessert for $40 a head).
The Bib Gourmand restaurant winners are widely considered the best and most affordable restaurants in New York.

Congratulations to the 2015 Bib Gourmand restaurant winners, Alobar and John Brown Smokehouse!
The Michelin Guide, however, was remiss in omitting the wonderful farm-to-table restaurant, Crescent Grill. They have a terrific prix fixe dinner of an appetizer, entree and dessert for under $30, not $40. It’s one of the best value priced dinners not just in Long Island City, but in all of New York City for just $29!!!! Michelin, big omission!
