Noho Hospitality Group, led by renowned Chef Andrew Carmellini, Josh Pickard and Luke Ostrom, has signed a lease for 11,000 square feet at the South Street Seaport, a spokeswoman for the restaurant group confirmed to Commercial Observer. The company took the space at Howard Hughes Corporation’s Pier 17 at 80 South Street.

As per The New York Post, which broke news of the deal, the restaurant will be on the pier’s first floor and mezzanine level. Noho Hospitality will join Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Chang when they open restaurants at the $731 million Seaport redevelopment project.

Chang will open a Momofuku in the fall, and as CO previously reported, Vongerichten is planning to open a 40,000-square-foot food market in the Tin Building, which Howard Hughes is restoring, and will open a 10,000-square-foot seafood restaurant on the second floor of Pier 17 later this year.

RKF‘s Robert Futterman, Joshua Strauss, Benjamin Zack and Spencer Levy represented both sides in the Noho Hospitality deal, an RKF spokesman informed CO. None of the lease details were immediately available. A representative for Howard Hughes didn’t provide information by publication time.

The Noho Hospitality spokeswoman would only confirm the details in the Post article to CO.

Howard Hughes’ New York tristate president, Saul Scherl, told the Post the eatery would be “in line with our vision of bringing unique offerings to the Seaport that can’t be found anywhere else in the city.”
