Earlier this year, the scaffolding came down at the sleepy, neon-wrapped Long Island Restaurant space at 110 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, and work has been going on inside. Eater notices that barman and Times writer Toby Cecchini is listed as one of the principles with Montauk Club vet and Coach Peaches supper club proprietor Joel Tompkins. Plans to reopen have been in the works since last year, when Tompkins got the go-ahead from the greasy spoon’s owner and approval from CB6 Brooklyn to serve liquor inside the space. This could very well be Brooklyn’s answer to M. Wells. [Eater NY, Earlier]
