Chef of popular Filipino taqueria to open second location

Jordan AndinoUp and coming celebrity chef Jordan Andino is opening a second 2nd City — the popular West Village Filipino Taqueria — this fall at 1752 Second Avenue, between East 91st and 92nd streets.

The 650 square foot space comes with 16 seats, and an additional 400 square feet in the basement.

Andino, who started cooking when he was nine years old, is a TV personality and a former flame of Kris Jenner. He also did stint on the Kardashian’s TV show as the family’s Hamptons chef.

Andino hopes to transform 2nd City — named not after Chicago but Cebu City, the first capital of the Philippines — into a chain as Filipino food is coming out into its own.

A third location is coming in Brooklyn. Andino’s mother, a model, artist and actress who was in, “Dude, Where’s My Car,” grew up in Cebu City while his father was a Toronto chef.

Born in Toronto, raised in California and “classically trained” in Napa and New York, Andino said his goal is to put Filipino food on the Michelin map — and he is creating his own “AmAsian” style to get it there.

Winick Realty Group’s Charles Rapuano and Thomas Galo repped both 2nd City and landlord AMAC Holdings on the Second Avenue site, which is capitalizing on the increased foot traffic brought by the newly-completed Second Avenue Subway, which stops steps from the property.

“Ownership was looking for a cool, hip tenant to capitalize on the new vibrancy in the neighborhood, and that is exactly what 2nd City represents,” said Galo. “Their model is built on quick service and repeat business, which will serve the office workers, students and residents nearby.”

Retail flourishes in outer boroughs amid trying times

aaron-fishbein-print-ver-profile-001Across the water, Long Island City in Queens is also experiencing a construction boom. It has a new Aloft hotel — funky, trendy and colorful, as that Starwood brand is known to be — plus a whopping 36 hotels on the way. Not to mention the neighborhood has an existing 12,000 apartments and another 22,000 units coming online in the next two years alone, making it a bright spot for future retail growth.

Starbucks has already rented in Long Island City, while Western Queens’ first Chipotle is open at 26-16 Jackson Ave. Other retailers, from wine shops to pharmacies and banks, are going on site visits in the area.

Many young professionals — some with kids — live in the Queens Plaza area but work in Manhattan. They pump life and bucks into the retailers before and after work.

“We are already consulting on new big-box store locations,” says Aaron Fishbein, director of Winick Realty Group. “Residents are currently waiting to buy a cup of coffee, and retailers want to lock in [lower] rents and not miss out like they did in Williamsburg [in Brooklyn].”

Italian eatery serving up fried dough opens on McDougal St.

panzerotto-jpgFried dough is a favorite of many cultures, from America’s sweet donut to the versatile churro that dominates simple fast food options from Spain and Portugal to the South of France. The Italian version is a panzerotto.

The fried dough specialty has a new haven at 124 McDougal St., with the opening of Mr. Panzerotto.

The half-moon shaped dough comes from the South of Italy’s Apulian region, and was originally made with tomato and mozzarella.

The menu will include sweet sausage with broccoli rabe, salmon with avocado and honey with granola — with vegetarian and vegan options.

It will be open daily — and up to 3 a.m. on weekends. Francesco Bardazzi of PD Properties represented the tenant, Christian Francone, while Josh Siegelman, of Winick Realty Group, represented the landlord.

All aboard the Second Avenue Subway real estate boom

ues-cornerIt’s here. Almost. We hope.

After nearly a century of development, the MTA says that Phase 1 of the Second Avenue Subway will be up and running by the end of December — bringing the Q line to a quartet of stations from 63rd to 96th streets.

It’s optimistic, if belated, news from a city teasing the line’s promise since before the Great Depression.

But this time there’s a sense that an end is finally in sight.

For this reason, some brokers say, expect new retail east of Second Avenue to include kids’ services like martial arts studios and tutoring centers.

But while the retail scene is experiencing new gloss — Barry’s Bootcamp is now at 1216 Second Ave., for instance — an explosion of new stores has yet to occur.

“Retailers are having a hard time pulling the trigger until they see the [actual] effect of the subway,” says Hillel Spinner, founder of Spinner Equities.

But “the beginning of the end is near … and experienced retailers are definitely looking into the area,” notes Hal Shapiro, senior director at the Winick Realty Group.

Hudson Market to open second location at 57 West

hudson-marketHudson Market, a farm-to-table grocer that specializes in food from local purveyors, will launch its second Manhattan location at the Durst Organization’s Helena 57 West.

The 9,889-square-foot market will be on the ground and lower level of 601 W. 57th St. under a 15-year lease.

The deal is the latest retail coup at Durst’s 57 West superblock between 11th and 12th avenues, which is also home to the Bjarke Ingels-designed Via “pyramid” building and a third residential building, Frank 57 West.

Hudson Market, which first opened on Tenth Avenue in Chelsea, was repped by Murro Realty’s Cosmo Montemurro.

Durst was repped in-house by Ashley Gee and by Winick Realty’s Steven E. Baker and Kenneth Hochhauser.

Terms of the deal were not released.

The 57 West block has been gobbling up prestige commercial tenants.

Via 57 landed a Landmark Theaters cinema complex as well as Ousia, a high-end seafood restaurant operated by the Livanos family.
