Au Pied de Cochon Alum to Open Crazy Diner in LIC

New, 3 comments

An alum of Au Pied de Cochon, one of Montreal's most well known (and cultishly loved) restaurants, is opening a "Quebeco-American" diner called M. Wells out in Long Island City. And the menu is going to be bonkers! Just some of the items chef Hugue Dufour is planning: frogs’ legs, Salisbury steak, lobster rolls, foie gras tamales, rabbit, hot dogs, tortilla Española, thick-crust pan pizza, fried rice, tourtiere (a Candaian meat pie), and plogue, a buckwheat pancake. Oh and this: "Eventually it will sell items like rabbit pelts from Kansas, black truffles from Tennessee."

It's going to open to the public for breakfast in one week, so LIC, please brace. And NY food obsessives, this is the time to learn your 7 train.
