Brooklyn's three-Michelin-starred grocery store slash restaurant is jumping the river and opening an outpost in New York City's Hell's Kitchen, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Owner Moe Issa confirmed that he has signed a lease for a location on 39th Street between Ninth and 10th Avenue, with plans to open the new location in June or July. The space is reporteldy 11,000 square-feet with an outdoor terrace and an extra 7,000 square-feet downstairs.
Manhattan will still get the grocery store and restaurant experience, although Issa claims it won't be the same concept. "We're in the middle of planning," he told the WSJ.
Nevertheless, there will be César Ramirez's cooking in a 60-seat restaurant for small plates, as well as a smaller chef's table. Luckily, Issa doesn't plan on closing the Brooklyn original, so die-hard fans of the flagship can still get their Ramirez fix off the island.
