[Update below] Until it suddenly closed in August due to lease problems the foodie favorite in a former diner M. Wells could seemingly do no wrong (unless you were GQ's Alan Richman). Luckily, when it shut its doors owners Hugue Dufour and Sarah Obraitis promised that they would be back. And hey! Somebody calling themselves M. Wells Diner has gone and applied for a liquor license in Long Island City!

If this is the same M. Wells (we wrote to check but haven't heard back), and it gets approved, the new location will be at 30-18 Hunters Point Avenue, which seems about in sync with earlier reports about the restaurant's future home.

Update: Ah, well, nevermind. Sarah Obraitis writes to tell us "Nope. That place has long been over."
