A new Japanese restaurant is expected to open in September at 10-70 Jackson Avenue– where Los Amigos deli used to be located.

The restaurant, to be called Hibino LIC, will be run by Sooja Lee and her husband Masaru Fukuda.

The couple runs a Japanese restaurant in Cobble Hill, called Hibino, which has received many positive reviews by food critics.

Lee said the Long Island City restaurant will offer pretty much the same menu as the Cobble Hill location. The main difference is that the LIC restaurant will be a smaller.

There will be 11 tables and 26 seats at the LIC location. There are no plans for a sidewalk café.

Lee said it will take time to refurbish the existing space and that she hopes that the restaurant will be up and running by late August, early September.

Amazing edition to the neighborhood! Love hearing about a new restaurant coming to Hunter’s Point practically every other day! Bring more retail and perhaps another Duane Reade near Court Sq!
