A 15,000-square-foot space at 450 West 33rd Street (at Tenth Avenue). the building that houses the New York Daily News, The Associated Press and WNET Channel 13, has a new lessee, according to restaurant consultant and broker John Harding, who brokered the deal and then e-mailed me to tell me about it. That lessee is restaurateur Simon Oren of the Tour De France Group (Pigalle, Marseille, Nice Matin, L'Express), Sushi Samba etc.
John says the space will house a bi-level American bistro, a self-serve cafe and a retail bakery.
So, there you have it.
