Rocco Steakhouse to Open New 5K-SF Midtown Eatery


Restaurateurs Rocco Trotta and Pete Pjetrovic are establishing a second outpost for Rocco Steakhouse.

Rocco is moving into 5,450 square feet at 106 East 57th Street after signing a lease with the Dorchester, the co-op which owns and operates the Midtown building, the New York Post first reported. Asking rent was $200 per square foot, according to the Post.

“There’s good visibility on 57th Street from both the office population as well as the luxury residential in that pocket, and we’re even seeing an increase in foot traffic,” CBRE (CBRE)’s Jared Lack, who negotiated on behalf of the co-op with Andrew Goldberg, told Commercial Observer.

The steakhouse will take over 3,500 square feet on the ground level, 1,350 square feet on the lower level and 600 square feet on the mezzanine from chophouse BLT Steak, which closed in December.

Trotta and Pjterovic, who both previously spent a decade at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, opened Rocco Steakhouse at 72 Madison Avenue in 2015. It’s unclear when they plan to debut the Midtown outpost.
