Have you heard of M. Wells yet? It's been getting rave reviews as of late. It's a diner in Long Island City. But, it's not your typical diner. M. Wells is a diner serving fantastic, fun, playful, and awesome eats! I recommend going with a group like I did two weeks ago, and sharing everything. It'll be one of the most fun dining experiences you have.
When was the last time you saw veal brains on a menu? When was the last time you ate veal brains? Order this dish at M. Wells, although the texture is a tad "custardy", there is some nice crunch and great flavor to the dish. I loved these brains!
Bone marrow with escargot was delicious.
I usually enjoy my oysters plain, but the addition of a coffee sabayon on the ones served at M. Wells complemented these oysters perfectly.
The M. Wells bibimbap served with seafood is truly tasty. It would give any Koreatown joint a run for its money, and in fact, I think this bibimbap has more flavor than any of the ones I have eaten in Koreatown!
The largest burger I have ever seen is served at M. Wells, as well. It costs $42, but it is meant for sharing (shared with 7 people is $6 a person which is a good deal!) It's not the best burger in NYC, but it could be the most fun to eat! This pic does not do it justice. This thing is humongous!
The surf and turf is another fun sharing dish at M. Wells. The surf, some scrumptious crawfish, the turf, a whole chicken (they were sold out of the short rib that normally comes with this dish.)
Definitely leave room for dessert. A pineapple upside down cake will leave you smiling for days. A banana cream pie will too.
So take a trip to Long Island City (it's the second stop on the 7 train, right next to the station entrance!), for one of the most fun dining experiences you will ever have. A diner like no other.
