Restaurant Review: El Ay Si – Long Island City, NY
I had the Tequila Lime Shrimp Appetizer which was really good.
For Dinner I had the wild boar Sheppard’s Pie and the Skirt Steak Fajita. The Sheppard’s pie was absolutely amazing! The portions are small, just like the place (so come early!), but well worth the wait! That pie is awesome!! The skirt steak was cooked just the way I like it, and had an excellent marinade! The rice and beans were ehhh, but the steak was great! The Wild Boar Sheppard’s pie is worth the visit alone! Keep an eye out for Groupons and other savings. They even offer 10% off if the order is paid in cash.
If you are looking for a quiet little romantic getaway this is the place, if you have a large group or if you are a large person this is not the place for you the booths are narrow like the restaurant. Also, if you don’t like confined spaces you may have a problem, but if quaint is what you like don’t forget to try the pie!
They actually have a pretty big backyard I don’t know why they haven’t utilized it. Maybe zoning laws? If you are listening management and you are allowed, you can probably put at least 8-10 tables out there or a small cash bar, maybe white Christmas lights along the fence. The money you spend you will make back in a day or two.

The menu selection is also not too large, just like the place.
