Taco Bell Cantina Entering NYC Market With Penn Station Area Store
"Taco Bell Cantina—with its urban restaurant design, custom menu with shareable appetizers, alcoholic beverages and open kitchen—has signed a lease for its Manhattan store in the Penn Station neighborhood, Commercial Observer has learned, marking the New York City debut of the sub-brand.
The latest concept from Taco Bell will be in 2,451 square feet on the ground floor of the 12-story 500 Eighth Avenue between West 35th and West 36th Streets via a 10-year lease with the landlord, a group led by Walter & Samuels Chairman David I. Berley. The asking rent was $200 per square foot, according to Winick Realty Group‘s Lee Block, who along with Jeff Winick and Danielle Winick, represented the landlord in the June deal. Taco Bell is taking space formerly occupied by local shoe store, Mr. Joe.
Taco Bell Cantina will open in the fourth quarter of this year, Block said."
