SA Hospitality, the parent company of Italian eatery Sant Ambroeus—popular with celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Katy Perry, Harrison Ford and Lenny Kravitz—has inked a 7,000-square-foot deal at Brookfield Place for the restaurant’s fourth location in New York City.
The new Sant Ambroeus will have a restaurant on two levels and a coffee shop on one at 200 Vesey Street between North End Avenue and West Street, part of the Brookfield Place complex, which is owned and operated by Brookfield Property Partners. (SA Hospitality already operates three coffee shops in the city in addition to its restaurants.)
The restaurant will feature 40-foot ceiling heights, according to The New York Post, which broke news of the deal. The landlord told Commercial Observer the deal is for 15 years, but declined to provide the asking rent. SA Hospitality is planning to open the new outlet in the second quarter of next year.
“Sant Ambroeus has established itself in New York City’s most coveted locations, so its arrival Downtown is a true testament to the allure of Brookfield Place,” Michael Goldban, a senior vice president at Brookfield Place, said in a prepared statement.
Sant Ambroeus’ current locations are at 1000 Madison Avenue between East 77th and East 78th Streets, 259 West Fourth Street between Horatio Street and Eighth Avenue and 265 Lafayette Street between Prince and Spring Streets. It is also operates eateries in Southampton, N.Y. and Palm Beach, Fl.
Brookfield’s Goldban and Mark Kostic brokered the deal for the landlord in-house, while RKF’s Spencer Levy handled the transaction for Sant Ambroeus.
“Sant Ambroeus is joining the likes of Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Ermenegildo Zegna and Salvatore Ferragamo [at Brookfield Place],” Levy said in prepared remarks. “There could not have been a better custom-made match for Lower Manhattan’s new luxury Italian retail corridor than Sant Ambroeus’ irreproachable restaurant brand.”
