The Asian Halal place by Queensbridge on 21st Street is being reinvented as LIC Grill. The “no frills,” as they say, joint, previously wore the banner, “Pakistan, India & Bangladesh Halal Food” and below that, “Asian Restaurant” on brown-red coloring. This has been replaced by a sleek wood-toned banner simply headed “LIC Grill,” subheaded, “Indian and American Cuisine.”
I saw the place being renovated in the inside today and don’t know how it will look or how the food will change. Maybe it needed to appeal to the growing number of tourists around? Granted, I don’t think I ever saw it as busy as the South Asian places on 36th Avenue or Queens Plaza, but I thought it was fine as it was. Nice people, good food.
