While eating out dinner can sometimes be bank-breaking, lunch is always a great--and less expensive--alternative. While in LIC, I spied two interesting lunch specials on Vernon Blvd that caught my eye--both venues are conveniently located and one even offers outdoor seating.
Blend - This interesting Latin-fusion joint offers hearty lunch dishes from $6.95 to $7.95. Their options are very meat-heavy so you gotta be a carnivore to enjoy them.
