Japanese chef Hisanobu Osaka is opening his first restaurant in New York at 333 Hudson Street, which is expected to open in mid-August.

Osaka has signed a 12-year lease at the West Village space, with a ground floor of 3,500 square feet and basement of 2,000 square feet.

Owner Whitehall Archives listed the space at an asking price of $14,500 per month, but Osaka beat out other would-be tenants by offering $18,000 a month.

“We have been looking for a space for over a year and we came to [333 Hudson] and thought the location was beautiful,” said Michiko Okada of Okada International, who represented Osaka in the lease.

Osaka has owned several restaurants in New Orleans, and was a private caterer for the Counsel General to Japan. The chef also worked as a consultant at Food TV’s Iron Chef program and WNBC’s Morning Show.

Osaka has worked in New York before, as a sous chef at the Morimoto restaurant in Chelsea and consulting chef at Rheon Cafe in Soho. The three-star French and Japanese fusion bistro coming to Hudson Street is the first restaurant he’s owned in the city.
