In our Italian Restaurant.
Gorgeous weather leads to wandering around our town, in this case with a camera to highlight all the changes coming to LIC. First of all, a follow-up to our story about the new bakery/cafe coming to 51st Avenue. A regular reader provided the information that it will be operated by a couple with ties the the neighborhood, Jonathan Stirling and Faye Hess, and that Faye is an accomplished chef and baker. According to Faye, they hope to be open in a month. You can check out her website below.
Next up, as we reported last month, veteran mainstay Mario’s Deli on Vernon Boulevard is no more. In the window is stenciled a beguiling message “the beginning.” According to the construction guys out front, it is slated to be another Italian restaurant. Looks like they might have a courtyard in the back too. Two blocks north on Vernon, the lot across from the LIC Bar has been fully cleared. No idea what is coming in, but my guess is it will be like a mullet: business in the front, party in the back(aka: Retail at ground level, residential above).
Finally, we leave you with the latest pic from Hibino: Sushi comin’ around the mountain when she comes…
