Stonehenge NYC announced the opening of two new restaurants in their luxury West Village building, 10 Downing.
Kyle Hotchkiss Carone, who leads the group behind American Bar, signed a 3,200 s/f lease for a new seafood-centric concept. Poised to open in the early fall of 2021, the restaurant will be located on the north corner of 6th Avenue and Downing Street.
“We are beyond excited to bring the success of American Bar to another part of the Village – taking our focus on American classics and bringing a seafood bent to the iconic, light-filled corner of Downing,” said Carone.
John McDonald and Chef Ryan Schmidtberger have also opened Hancock St. in Mcdonald’s former El Toro Blanco space, located in the Southern portion of the building.
As an existing retail tenant, McDonald recognized the success that the 10 Downing location brought to his prior establishment. As a restaurateur, he chose to reinvest in the 3,200 s/f space and tapped designer Serge Barker to create an elegant bistro-style interior.
“During the lockdown I decided to double down on the location and revamp the entire space into something new and exciting. Having opened last week, the timing is perfect with zero dining restrictions,” said McDonald.
“I’m pleased to welcome these two new restaurants to 10 Downing. New York is back and I’m excited to see these restaurants thrive in the vibrant downtown market,” said Ofer Yardeni, Chairman, and CEO of Stonehenge NYC.
