LIC Market is a New American restaurant located in Long Island City, Queens.  We opened in 2010 to provide outstanding food, service and atmosphere to a neighborhood we love.  Chef-owner Alex Schindler’s inspired dishes balance seasonal ingredients with American and world influence.  His frequently changing menus combine peak season components with creativity and skill.

We endeavor to make the sustainable food movement an industry standard and not just a current trend.  We source from farms throughout NY, NJ, CT, VT & MA.  Much of our produce is harvested within 24 hours of serving. Our meat is humanely raised and handled as well as hormone/antibiotic free.  Our coffee is organic, sourced from Direct Trade Micro-lots and roasted in Long Island.

Like our food menus, our wine and beer lists are frequently updated with attention to season, quality & craft.  Our wine is sourced from many countries including France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany & the US.  Our wines are natural and hand harvested by small growers on old and new vines.  We value non-interventionist techniques that produce wines true to their viticultural heritage and expressive of their natural terroir. We offer a diverse list of craft beers with emphasis on small breweries and specialty brands, including excellent Brooklyn and New York State options.

Jake Wallace is a New York-based artist and printmaker. Born in Queens and a Brooklyn resident for the last 14 years, Jake has witnessed many changes to the city landscape, including new development, the destruction of neighborhood landmarks, and the evolution of everday life in the city. 

Jake is inspired by the classic industrustrial architecture that is quickly disappearing throughout the 5 boroughs- its inherent beauty and texture, and the ife stories told via the facades and lines of each structure. He is drawn to each building's unique character and strives to capture this aesthetic in his work.

"Each series features a different building or structure that I have scoped out and photographed. I will shoot one location from every possible angle to try and get the most interesting and dynamic image possible."

Jake graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from F.I.T. in 1997. For the past 15 years he has worked as a creative consultant for a wide variety of clients from Fortune 500 companies to fast-growing start-ups, as well as some of NYC's top digital agencies. He is currently Creative Director / Co-Founder of Rebellion Design Co.
