Dorian Cafe Long Island City

Posted on September 23, 2008. Filed under: American/Nouveau, Cheap Dining, LIC |

Dorian Cafe ( 10-01 50th Ave 718-937-1120) seemingly resembles any other diner in New York. However, it’s when you start eating you notice that the quality surpasses any traditional diner experience by far. Dorian creates an outstanding dining experience- minus the trendy atmosphere or attitude that accompanies most surrounding eateries. Its humble decor includes nothing more than a checkered floor, tin ceiling and traditional style seating booths.  The selections are vast but not complicated. The food is simple but, in  most cases, extremely well prepared. Each visit contains an elegant touch that sets Dorian apart from the rest. Brunch is served with a mimosa, dinner is served with gourmet olive and onion rolls, and every meal is served with a friendly greeting from start to finish. Breakfast never falls short of a tasty entree at a reasonable price, offering standards like Greek omelets or more original choices like frittatas. The gigantic Mediterranean platter is filled with humus, vegetables, babaganoush, tahini sauce, tabouli salad, and falafel. The special du jour- sea scallops sauteed in garlic butter won’t melt in your mouth, but is sure to please. This is one restaurant where quality and quantity meet at a cut above average.
