Rockefeller Center announced that the owners and operators of Frenchette, the celebrated French brasserie in downtown Manhattan, will take over the space at 45 Rockefeller Plaza on 50th Street which previously housed Brasserie Ruhlman.
The untitled project at Rockefeller Center will be Chef-Owners Riad Nasr and Lee Hanson’s third restaurant in New York City.
“We are thrilled that the Frenchette team will be coming to Rockefeller Center,” said EB Kelly, a Tishman Speyer Managing Director overseeing Rockefeller Center. “We are building an innovative and daring food and beverage program to set the bar as a dining destination. We cannot wait for the opening.”
The project will join more than 50 food and beverage offerings currently available at the Center.
Frenchette is New York’s contemporary take on a French brasserie that guests have eagerly been lining up for since its Tribeca restaurant (pictured top) opened in 2018. Founded and owned by Chefs Riad Nasr and Lee Hanson, Frenchette is known for its all natural wine selections and inventive French cuisine.
