Sticky’s Finger Joint, a popular chicken fingers chain, has signed a 12-year lease for a fifth location in New York City, Commercial Observer has learned. The new restaurant will open in the fourth quarter at 1450 Broadway at West 41st Street.
The new space will span 1,292 square feet on the first floor and 600 square feet in the basement. The asking rent was $387 per square foot, according to a spokeswoman for the landlord’s broker.
Adam Langer and Mark Tedeschi of SRS Real Estate Partners represented the restaurant in the deal. Langer did not immediately respond to request for comment. Winick Realty Group’s Jeff Winick, Danielle Winick and Jason Berkley worked on behalf of the landlord, Zar Group.
“This strip of West 41st Street has developed into a terrific block with some of the strongest co-tenancy in New York—including Chop’t, WeWork, Equinox, SoulCycle and Whole Foods—turning it into one of the most heavily-trafficked walkways to Bryant Park,” Berkley said in a prepared statement. “Sticky’s Finger Joint is a true up-and-coming retail concept with a great product and smart operators who understand the market and their business.”
Sticky’s Finger Joint was founded in 2012 by Jon Sherman and Paul Abrahamian, with the aim to deliver quality chicken fingers, using only locally sourced organic ingredients and putting creative spins on the classic childhood dish. The chain has locations at 484 Third Avenue in Murray Hill, 31 West Eighth Street in Greenwich Village, 21 Maiden Lane in the Financial District and 598 Ninth Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen.
