Indie LIC is aiming for a mid-October opening, owner Shaunna Sargent wrote in an email to The Court Square Blog.
Sargent is the restaurateur behind Indie Food & Wine in Lincoln Center and will take that same concept to Linc LIC at 43-10 Crescent Street. Construction for the space started over the summer, and the business applied for a liquor license in September.
Here’s a quote from our interview with Ms. Sargent from May:1
I’ve been getting to know the area a lot. I see all of the energy here, all of the things going up, and the amount of people that are going to need great places to eat and drink in the very near future. It’s going to be crazy here in the next few years. I feel like now is a really good time to get in and I love this neighborhood. That’s why I wanted to it here. We need stuff like this. We just want to bring good vibes and delicious food, and beautiful wine and cocktails to the neighborhood that really needs it.
