The owners of the Four Seasons Restaurant are working on a deal that could move the iconic power lunch spot Downtown.

Restaurateurs Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini are quietly negotiating a deal to take over the top of 28 Liberty Street in the Financial District. The restaurant will lose its lease at the Seagram Building, at 375 Park Avenue in Midtown, in July.

28 Liberty is owned by the Chinese investment firm, Fosun International, which is also considering three other “household name” restaurants for the space in the former Chase conference center on the 60th floor of that building, the New York Post reported.

The Major Food Group team of Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalanick will take over the Seagram’s building space after the Four Seasons leaves.

The city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission recently granted Fosun the right to build 200,000 square feet of new below-grade retail space at 28 Liberty. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
