Sleek and sexy are the first adjectives that come to mind at Long Island City’s SHI, an upscale Asian-fusion restaurant located along Long Island’s waterfront and Gantry State Park. Which is to say those Manhattan views? Breathtaking. SHI’s menu offers the best in Chinese and Japanese cuisine, from traditional favorites like crab Rangoon and red curry duck to assorted sushi and sashimi. For a little something unexpected, try the Lychee calamari or the banana spring roll.

A little more inland, delight in another foreign flavor. Headed by Chef Jean-Claude Perennou—who brought decades of delight to Waldorf Astoria patrons—Cannelle LIC is a must-go for pastry lovers across the globe. Try a Napoleon or a pear tart, or even the ice cream. Whatever you fancy, it’s here waiting—and almost too gorgeous to eat.
