Original Zesty’s Pizzeria has signed a 15-year lease for a 2,300-square-foot space at 1670 Third Avenue, between 93rd and 94th Streets, on the Upper East Side.
The popular neighborhood pizzeria called nearby 1693 Third Avenue home for over 30 years before shuttering last spring.
Asking rent for the space was $110 per square foot, according to a press release announcing the deal. Brad Schwarz and JP Sutro of Lee & Associates represented both the tenant and the landlord, R&D 1670 LLC, in the lease.
“When Zesty’s lost their lease, area residents lost their go-to pizzeria,” said Mr. Schwarz, a senior managing director, in a prepared statement. “A lot of people, including the tenant, will be happy to see this staple return to the neighborhood.”
Mr. Schwarz could not immediately be reached for further comment.
