According to a Facebook from Jessica Little McCormick who seems to be the owner, a new restaurant called Bellwether is coming to Long Island City. Jessica mentions that she and her husband have lived in LIC since 2009, have a 1.5 year old daughter and a son in the oven (I had to). They have teamed up with Preston Madson, a “former long-time chef of Freemans.” Unlike Freeman’s, this restaurant will be easy to locate as it’s on Vernon Boulevard in the corner location previously occupied by Masso on 47th Road. It also has a recently added giant sign announcing its presence. In addition to food, just like Freemans they will have a full cocktail list. Woo-hoo, who needs the LES?
