Burger Legend Corner Bistro Debuts in Long Island City

The resurrection of Team M. Wells isn't the only red hot restaurant excitement going down in Long Island City, Queens. Tipsters report and a visit today confirms that Corner Bistro, the West Village burger legend and late night destination, has opened its promised LIC outpost. It opened just over a week ago and already one local is griping about the "stale/reheated" fries and the burger's lack of character compared to nearby favorite Tournesol while a Yelper blames complaints on "an otherwise pretentious LIC crowd."

Meanwhile, Petey's, the Astoria burger spot, opened a new location close by at 46-46 Vernon Boulevard pretty much at the same time as Corner. LIC residents may not be able to eat in a catamaran factory just yet, but at least they have some cheap burger options.
