CBRE Arranges New Lease For Plant-Based Eatery By Celebrity Chef Matthew Kenney At 1245 Broadway


Matthew Kenney Cuisine Inks 7,900 SF Lease in NoMad

Demonstrating New York City’s continued allure and a retail market beginning to show signs of life after a challenging period due to the global pandemic, CBRE announced today the completion of a new 7,900-sq.-ft. lease for Matthew Kenney Cuisine. The yet-to-be-named restaurant owned by the eponymous American celebrity chef, entrepreneur, author, and educator specializing in plant-based cuisine will occupy the ground and lower-level retail space of 1245 Broadway, owned by GDSNY and Stockholm-based Klovern, and located near the new Virgin and Ritz Carlton hotel developments.

Anthony Stanford and Henry Rossignol of CBRE’s retail brokerage Team Yunis represented both the landlord and tenant in the new ten-year retail lease. The team serves as the exclusive retail leasing agent for the 23-story, Class A boutique office tower currently under development at the corner of Broadway and 31st Street in the NoMad neighborhood of Manhattan.

“We are extremely excited to see renowned chef Matthew Kenney commit to this new, state-of-the-art development which is being brought to life by GDSNY. This eatery will be an incredible boost to the NoMad neighborhood, offering both fine dining in a formal setting and a brasserie-style menu in a casual space,” said Mr. Stanford.

The Los Angeles-based chef will add the new NoMad location to his roster of 25 existing Matthew Kenney Cuisine eateries spread around the globe from Dubai to Los Cabos, Mexico, featuring concepts like the pizza-focused Double Zero and Sestina, which specializes in plant-based Italian.
