Chelsea Bagel, a kosher-style bagel bakery, has expanded east.
The bagel shop, whose sole location was at 139 West 14th Street, has signed a lease for 1,150 square feet at 800 Second Avenue at the southeast corner of East 43rd Street in Midtown.
Winick Realty Group’s Matthew Schuss represented the tenant. The firm’s Hal Shapiro represented landlord Philips International. The 12-year lease was signed in September.
“After a long search for the perfect second location, Chelsea Bagel is very excited to come to 800 Second Avenue,” said Mr. Schuss in a prepared statement. “This neighborhood has been lacking a high-quality bagel café and with the Pfizer building across the street and the Israeli consulate in their building, Chelsea Bagel will be well-positioned to serve the heavy concentration of office workers and residents in the neighborhood.”
A spokeswoman for Winick said the asking rent was $225 per square foot.
The East Side location will operate as Chelsea Bagel of Tudor City when it opens on Jan. 1, 2015.
The space was previously home to Clarke’s Standard, a burger joint affiliated with P.J. Clarke’s. Commercial Observer recently reported that another Clarke’s Standard had moved from its location in the Financial District. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding these closings.
