Size: 9,000 SF

Status: Proposal


Located at 465 Lexington Ave, the proposed restaurant and market nestles in the heart of Mid-town East. Looking at precedents such as Eataly and Chelsea Market, the business strategy in coupling an Asian-inspired market and restaurant programs is to target business workers in the area with lunch, happy hour and dinner options. Upon entering, a gallery exhibiting the Asian culture of dining leads to the main stairs that descend customers to the open market space. An open bar is designed to be the centerpiece of the market, with various stalls displaying fresh grocery ready to be made into a meal. Private lounges partitioned with wooden screens provide space for larger parties and extended stay.
