BLVD doesn’t have a big enough by-the-glass selection to make it a must-visit from other parts of the city, but if you live in the area or want somewhere to decompress after listening to your friend “hmm” for the last three hours at MoMA PS1, this is the best place to drink wine in Long Island City. The wine list is organized by style and has options from all over the world, with a lot of good bottles under $50. The best times to come are Happy Hour (weekdays until 7pm) when you should sit in a plush seat at the long bar and drink a few $7.50 glasses of wine, or anytime on Monday, when bottles are all half-price.
