Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine, the popular authentic Cuban chain, has signed a lease at 593 First Avenue, expanding their Manhattan presence.
Located on the corner of East 34th Street, the restaurant will occupy 1,200 s/f on the ground floor as well as 350 s/f t in the basement.
The fast casual restaurant chain, which operates three additional locations throughout Manhattan, signed a ten year lease at 593 First Avenue.
The storefront positions the brand directly across the street from NYU Medical Center, steps away from JDS Development’s 800-unit luxury rental tower.
The co-tenancy in Kips Bay was a big draw for the tenant, with recognizable tenants such as Starbucks, which was also previously leased by Baker and Galo, Sweetgreen, Chipotle and Fairway Market.
Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine was represented by Jordan Raphan of Kassin Sabbagh Realty and Winick Realty Group president Steven E. Baker and director Thomas Galo proudly represented ownership.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine to the area. With NYU Medical Center directly across the street, we are confident Sophie’s will be a great amenity to the healthcare employees, office workers and residents in the neighborhood” said Galo.
