A Georgian bakery and restaurant has inked a lease for a 2,200 s/f space on 14th Street in Chelsea.
Chama Mama, an all-day bakery and restaurant featuring Georgian cuisine and a variety of fresh-baked bread, signed a ten-year deal for a space at 149 W. 14th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues, according to Steve Rappaport of Sinvin Realty, who represented the landlord—149 W 14 PR LLC—and the tenant in the deal.
The space also features a 1,100 s/f basement and a large backyard.
Chama Mama replaces Cuban restaurant El Paraiso, the previous tenant in the space.
“Chama Mama is a unique concept, new to the City. It’s an all-day bakery and restaurant featuring the marvelous cuisine from the country of Georgia,” said Rappaport. “Bread, in many variations will be baked in-house in a ceramic circular hearth oven. We looked for months for the right spot for the first location. 14th Street struck immediately as the perfect place. It is on a busy two way street, that sits close to Chelsea, the West Village, and the Meatpacking District.”
