Canadian burger chain Big Smoke Burger has leased its first New York location at 70 Seventh Ave., between West 14th and West 15th Sts. in Chelsea.
The location, which had been occupied by the previous tenant for 20 years, includes 1,000 s/f on the ground floor, 500 s/f in the basement, and 880 s/f in an outdoor courtyard. Winick Realty Group's Alexander Hill and Jonathan Banayan represented landlord, Group 868 Inc.
Big Smoke Burger, who plans to open the restaurant in the next four months, was represented by Ross Berkowitz of RKF.
"This is a great location to launch Big Smoke Burger in the New York market," said Hill. "This area of Chelsea is growing rapidly and with the 1, 2, 3 subway stop right nearby, the storefront is going to get seven-day foot traffic."
