NEW YORK—RKF, the country’s leading independent real estate firm specializing in retail leasing, investment sales and consulting services, has arranged a lease for Los Tacos No. 1, its third New York City restaurant, at 136 Church Street in Tribeca.
RKF Managing Director Neal Ohm and Eddie Mamiye (formerly of RKF) represented Los Tacos No. 1 in the transaction. The RKF team of Vice Chairman Ariel Schuster, Vice President Ross Berkowitz and Managing Director Andrew Stern represented building ownership, HUBB NYC.
Los Tacos No. 1 will occupy 1,900 square feet—1,350 square feet on the ground floor and 550 square feet in the lower level. The architecturally significant space is situated at the southwest corner of Warren and Church Streets, where Tribeca and the Financial District intersect. 136 Church Street is just steps from the World Trade Center, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, and Brookfield Place, among other Lower Manhattan tourist attractions.
Los Tacos No. 1 first opened in 2013 with a stand in Chelsea Market. Quickly attracting a loyal following, the stand drew lines of customers willing to brave a lengthy wait for some of the city’s best carne asada and adobada tacos, guacamole and aguas frescas. Last July, Los Tacos No. 1 opened its second outpost, in Times Square, at 229 West 43rd Street. The chain plans to continue expanding throughout the region, having made several New York City top 100 restaurants lists.
“Los Tacos No. 1 will have an incredible opportunity to serve the hundreds of thousands of hungry people that visit, live and work in this vibrant market, which continues to be one of the fastest growing residential neighborhoods in New York City,” explained Ohm.
Neighbors include Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine, Amish Market, Schnipper’s Quality Kitchen, The Vitamin Shop, Rosa Mexicano, Starbucks, Famous Famiglia Pizza, Lilly O’Brien’s, Pret A Manger, Manhattan Proper, Takahachi Bakery, Kaede, Dunkin Donuts, Gran Horsi, Equinox, Chase Bank and Citibank.
