Antico Noe, the Florence-based panini shop that has been popular with locals and residents since 1945, is bringing their one-of-a-kind sandwiches to New York City.

Winick Realty Group’s Jordan Kaplan and Zach Diamond represented the brand as they leased 1,600 s/f at 220 East 53rd Street.

The storefront gives Antico Noe invaluable exposure to a large daytime population as they meticulously recreate the experience and taste of their famous Florence shop.

“This location has the perfect mix of customers for our brand,” said Michael Grant, who is spearheading Antico Noe’s U.S. expansion. “Look to the left and you have the Lipstick Building and Citicorp Center; look to the right and you have a multitude of newly-built luxury condominiums. It’s exactly the hybrid market we were seeking for our first New York City store.”

Landlord Empire Management was represented by Michelle Guerrero of Pink Stone Realty.
