The Flatiron’s Big Daddy’s Diner has been leased to a Latin food concept.
Winick Realty Group president Steven E. Baker and director Charles Rapuano leased the retail space at 239 Park Avenue South, between East 19th and East 20th Street.
Home to Big Daddy’s Diner for over a decade, the space came to market for the first time in 20 years when the old-school diner closed after initially planning a revamp.
Baker and Rapuano represented the landlord, Abington Properties while Abe Bichoupan represented the incoming tenant, a Latin cuisine tenant.
The tenant signed a long-term lease to occupy 1,775 s/f on the ground floor, 900 s/f in the basement, and 500 s/f on the mezzanine. Located just steps from Union Square and Gramercy Park, neighboring tenants include Union Square Café, Boucherie, ABC Kitchen, Barbounia and Daily Provisions.
“Winick Realty Group is thrilled to have had the pleasure to work with Abington Properties once again on another successful transaction,” said Baker.
“Ownership was highly attracted to the tenant due to their several long-standing restaurants in NYC and happily welcomes the restaurant to the Flatiron District confident they would be a great fit for the neighborhood.”
