New Japanese eatery to serve up steaks at lightning speed in East Village

ikinari steakThink restaurants in the East Village take too long and have too many chairs? Well this one is for you. Ikinari Steak, a popular quick-service Japanese steakhouse known for its lack of chairs, is coming to 90 East 10th Street.

Ikinari Steak is designed to stuff you full of steak at lightning speed and, at least in Japan, forgoes seating for standing tables in order to accomplish that. However, it is yet unclear whether the chain’s newest location will have seating or not when it opens later this year, according to Eater.

Owned by chef and restaurateur Kunio Ichinose, the restaurant applied for a liquor license this month, and the application notes that the restaurant will have 50 seats and 15 tables – but who knows?

Ikinari boasts more than 50 locations, with more on the way.

“Customers stand at 1m-high tables and order the precise number of grammes desired. The cost — Y5/gramme for rib-eye to more than Y10/g for sirloin — gives customers what Mr. Ichinose claims is a vital sense of control,” the Financial Times explains.

This place is sure to be popular with downtown brokers on the go.

Josh Siegelman and Ian Zimmerman of Winick Realty Group represented the landlord, ELK Investors, in the deal.

In the Aftermath of an Explosion

37 St marks Place 03-17-15Across Second Avenue along Saint Marks Place, the scene was unusual. The block was empty but for camera-wielders peering into a rectangular hole containing a couple of Con Edison workers at the southwest corner. “It’s bad. It’s terrible,” said employees of a souvenir shop who did not wished to be named. “There’s no business at all. Only pictures.”

James Famularo, a senior director at Eastern Consolidated, who has been in the East Village for 15 years representing more than 30 properties, offers some hope. “It will be very difficult for the next few weeks but everyone will support the area once the barricades are gone.”

Mr. Famularo is currently offering 800 square feet at 24 Saint Marks Place. “I don’t think this will have a long-term negative affect on the East Village; anything like this that happens in New York City seems to pull people closer together.” He said the area ranks in the middle of Manhattan retail values, estimating restaurant spaces at $125 to $150 per square foot.

Across the street, 6,650 square feet at 37 Saint Marks Place, a.k.a. 133 Second Avenue, is also available, represented by three Winick Realty Group brokers including Lee Block, who agrees with Mr. Famularo that while the event itself was tragic, it will not have long- or even short-term effect on leasing or real estate overall.

“This is a dense, highly populated neighborhood that will still need services,” said Mr. Block. “New places are popping up every day. I don’t see that changing. New Yorkers are resilient. A week from now, hopefully, the streets will be open and people will go back to normal.”

St. Mark’s Place 7-Eleven hits the market

st marks 7-11A controversial and recently closed 7-Eleven shop on a prime corner of St. Mark’s Place in the East Village has officially hit the leasing market.

The branch closed on November 30, to many locals – locals that prefer artisanal smoothies to artificial Slurpees — jubilation. The closure was a rare setback for the chain, which opened 27 stores in the five boroughs last year alone, giving it 124 New York City locations, according to the New York Observer.

Winick Realty Group is once again marketing the corner retail space at 87 St. Mark’s Place. The property is one of five retail spaces — two of them leased — at the address which totals 8,525 square feet.

Former 7-Eleven Hits the Market on St. Mark’s Place

st marks 7-11 2“Retail for lease” signs went up yesterday at the just-closed 7-Eleven on St. Mark’s Place.

EV Grieve reported the branch closure on November 30, begetting a chorus of “good riddance” sentiments from the site’s largely anti-chain commenters. It was a rare setback for the quintessentially suburban convenient store behemoth as it continues to gobble up Manhattan real estate. Last year, the company opened 27 stores in the five boroughs, bringing it to 124 locations.

Winick Realty Group is once again marketing the corner retail space at 87 St. Mark’s Place. The current listing is not online, but a Winick listing from March included it as one of five retail spaces–two of them leased–at the address totaling 8,525 square feet.

This 7-Eleven location opened in April of 2012, shortly before East Villagers began fulminating against an incoming Slurpee station at 170 Avenue A.
