Knicks legend Frazier swishes and dishes restaurant into TF Cornerstone’s 505W37

New York Knicks’ Hall of Famer Walt “Clyde” Frazier is opening a restaurant and sports bar in Hudson Yards, The Real Deal has learned.

The establishment will likely be named “Clyde’s” and will be located in a 10,530-square-foot retail space on the ground floor of TF Cornerstone’s residential rental complex 505 West 37th Street at 10th Avenue. Frazier, who currently provides color-commentary on Knicks telecasts, was nicknamed “Clyde” for a fashion sense that resembles the title character in the 1967 film “Bonnie and Clyde.”

The restaurant will be a partnership with Ark Restaurants, which as the New York Post reported in March, signed a lease in the space with a target opening date of Dec. 1. Ark is also behind New York City eateries Bryant Park Grill, the Grill Room in the Financial District and El Rio Grande in Midtown East, among others. The asking rent was $40 a foot, the Post reported. Fred Klein and Herb Weisberg of KGW Associates represented Ark, while Winick Realty Group’s Steven Baker and Josh Singer represented TF Cornerstone.

East 14th Street Becoming Foodie Mecca

Calling all foodies! Three restaurants are opening along East 14th Street between Second and Third Avenues, reports DNAinfo. The eateries include the International House of Pancakes, a Taiwanese restaurant and a meatball joint.

“There’s been incredible activity between Second and Third [Avenues],” announced broker Brian Tregerman, of Winick Realty Group, who’s handled deals on the block before. “There’s always a few stores turning over there. Now with IHOP coming, that’s becoming a major 24-hour corner.”

IHOP is opening on the second floor at 235 E. 14 St. and is expected to open sometime in mid-to-late August. Chef Eddie Huang also debuted his Rivington Street restaurant, BaoHaus, on Wednesday. At the corner of East 14th Street and Second Avenue we’ll soon see the opening of Williamsburg’s meatball-focused restaurant, The Meatball Shop (pictured). And the falafel chain Chickpea, located between Second and Third Avenues, is in the works of reopening its doors too.

NATIONAL CHAINS HAVE ADAPTED THE TEMPORARY STORE STRATEGY, BUT IT’S GETTING HARDER TO EXECUTE

Spirit Halloween Flagship Store 655 Sixth AvenueSpirit Halloween, another party supply seller, also hopes to have a more visible presence in 2011, according to Alex Hill, an associate with brokerage firm Winick Realty Group who represents the retailer in the New York market.

Last year, Spirit Halloween operated seven New York City locations from September through October. This fall, it would like to secure 20 sites. Like Halloween City, Spirit Halloween has been trying to circumvent the problem of low space availability by agreeing to go into large big-box spaces that have been harder for landlords to backfill on a permanent basis.

“Most of the pop-up activity is done with small spaces,” Hill says. “If you have secondary and tertiary spaces, that’s a lot less desirable. Spirit does its pop-ups in very large spaces because they are harder to lease.”
