NEW YORK – RKF has arranged a 1,905-square-foot lease for Mirage Kitchen, a new quick-service Middle Eastern eatery, at 455 Park Avenue South in Manhattan’s Midtown South.
Located on Park Avenue South between 30th and 31st Streets, and expected to open in early 2015, Mirage Kitchen’s new restaurant includes 1,233 on the ground floor and 672 square feet in the lower level. This will be the tenant’s second location, after recently opening in September at 100 Seventh Avenue South in the West Village.
The transaction was arranged by RKF associate Yanni Marmarou, who represented the tenant, while RKF’s Joshua Strauss, executive vice president, and senior associate David Abrams acted on behalf of the landlord, Pan Am Equities, Inc.
“Located in the heart of Midtown South, this is an ideal location for Mirage given its strong co-tenancy and heavy pedestrian traffic from office workers and residents alike,” said Mr. Marmarou who noted that nearby tenants include Cosi, Chipotle, Guy & Gallard, California Pizza Kitchen and a brand new Lenwich by Lennys’s on the corner of East 31st Street and Park Avenue South.
Mirage Kitchen is a modern shawarma quick-service restaurant, focusing on a simple menu that covers a variety of platters, sandwiches, salads and side dishes. The restaurant aims to be the benchmark of halal food, serving Middle Eastern cuisine in a causal and fun environment.
