The Tao Group, who is behind the Tao and Lavo restaurants and nightclubs, has inked a lease to bring a 22,000-square-foot restaurant and lounge to the Maritime Hotel, the New York Post reported, set to open in March of next year. As The Real Deal previously reported, the Maritime, at 363 West 16th Street, at Ninth Avenue, in Chelsea, was thought to be a credit risk in 2009.

The Chelsea Tao will have 10,000 more square feet of space than Tao’s Midtown outpost, the original location. The new restaurant will occupy the space where Matsuri and the Hiro Ballroom were located, though the Post did not mention what had happened to these previous occupants.

“We weren’t really looking to open up another location, but it is an amazing space,” Paul Goldstein, a partner at Tao and Lavo, told the Post. “We couldn’t pass up the opportunity.” [Post]
