A new Japanese restaurant is expected to open in November 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.

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.

A worker said that the restaurant should open in a month.

Hibino is one of the finest Japanese restaurants I’ve ever been to. This is great news for LIC! Can’t wait to check out the new place—I actually hope it’s just like the one in Brooklyn.
