Restaurant and Brewery to Open in Financial District


A new restaurant and brewery is slated to open in the Financial District next year.

MezCali signed a 20-year lease for 4,170 square feet on the ground floor and part of the basement of 83 Maiden Lane between Williams and Gold Streets, according to the landlord’s broker Helmsley Spear. A spokesman for Helmsley Spear declined to provide asking rent in the deal, but CoStar (CSGP) Group data shows retail rents in the property are around $109 per square foot.

Kent Swig, Andrew Simon and Brett Zelner of Helmsley Spear brokered the deal for the landlord, the nonprofit AHRC New York City, which serves people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Manu Wendum and Lee Block of Winick Realty Group handled it for the tenant. A spokeswoman for Winick did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“We are thrilled that Helmsley Spear has successfully leased this prime FiDi location to MezCali,” Swig said in a statement. “This new lease follows the active transformation of FiDi into a 24/7 area as a commercial, residential, hospitality, and dining destination for many New Yorkers and visitors alike.”

MezCali plans to open in the spring of 2020 and will join wine shop La Petite Cave and Italian eatery Giardino D’oro in the 170,000-square-foot office building.
