Open Door is a small plate
Open Door is a small plate restaurant new to LIC that fills a needed niche. I've been there several times and always found the individual items high quality and well prepared. My favorites are the dumplings, sliders, duck and short rib. The owners are always on site and available. Service is friendly and good. The bar has an excellent selection of beers, cocktails and hard liqueur. It should also be noted that one of the owners hand crafted the awesome reverse model of the Pepsi sign from Gantry Park.

Very Open Door
Thoroughly enjoyed tapas dinner. All plates ordered had a sufficient amount for 2 with great tastes and presentation. Owner Gerry very friendly with service very attentive. Looking forward to trying Sat/Sun brunch.

This Place is a Keeper!!
The chef/owner, Nick, is a gracious host and an awesome chef. The plates were amazing, the ambiance was great, and if you're a 90's kid, the soundtrack will keep you in a happy nostalgia for hours. This place has become one of my top 3 restaurants! DEFINITELY RETURNING.

A great find
My girlfriend and I spent the day in LIC and like to try a new restaurant every time we visit. We searched yelp and this place had very good reviews and I have to say it truly lived up to them. The food is tapas style (on the larger portion side though) and everything we had was incredible. The decor is interesting but we both agreed we liked it and the service was very friendly and laid back. Will definitely return

Inventive and ambitious on the plate. Delicious in the mouth. Comfortable vibe for the body. Easy on the wallet. it defines a 21st century neighborhood hangout.

I've been here to drink before but never to eat. The meal was awesome!! Everyone was great and the prices were very reasonable. I'm not he most adventurous eater in the world, but I found that the food was interesting yet not pretentious. It was just a great experience.

This was a second chance for Opendoor - our first visit was less than impressive. This time the service was great, good was better than the last time and we actually chatted with some of the staff and we will back. We were honest about it being not-so-great the first time and they appreciated the feedback. Really nice bar, good cocktails, and great bar food. Still service kinks to work out, however.

Nick, the owner met us at the door and our whole experience began there. He brought us to our tble and made great suggestions. The small plate sharings were fun especially the short ribs, We will definitely return and enjoy the fun gain.
