Life In Motion
LIC’s beloved eatery, which was forced to close its packed doors last fall, is back. And the whole neighborhood (and our neighboring boroughs) is talking about the French-Canadian restuarant’s epic return! Read yesterday’s New York Daily News story…
Dufour revealed to Canadian Broadcasting Company they are planning on serving bento box-style meals and will work mostly sous-vide (sealed-bag cooking), since the space is mostly without gas.
He has also hinted at plans to open a space on a catamaran inside a warehouse space in Long Island City.
The beloved restaurant was forced to shutter at its former 49th Ave. location after Dufour and Obraitis had a rent dispute with their landlord in August.
M. Wells, the French Canadian-inspired eatery, known for its Caesar salad with anchovy dressing and pickled pork tongue, changed the restaurant scene in LIC when it first opened in 2010.
It was included in Bon Appetit magazine’s Best Restaurants in the World list in 2011.
