You may not want to order the fish at the new Bond 45. Shelly Fireman’s eatery is moving to the Hotel Edison in Midtown and will encompass the former Sofia’s Restaurant, where hitman Luca Brasi was killed in “The Godfather.”Bond 45 signed a 10,000-square-foot lease for a space in the hotel’s ground floor, at 225 West 47th Street.

The new location will seat about 350 people on two levels. It’s roughly a third larger than the Italian restaurant’s current home at 154 West 45th Street. Asking rent at the new space was about $1.5 million a year.

The 795-key Edison, owned by the Gerald Barad family, is current undergoing renovation, the New York Post reported.

The Sofia Restaurant had restyled itself in the years since “The Godfather.” It finally closed last year.

Jeffrey Roseman of NGKF represented the landlord in the deal.

“The hotel owners clearly were not interested in the highest possible rent. We had higher offers from chains, but they weren’t what the Edison wanted,” he told the Post. “Once Shelly expressed interest, they got very excited.” [NYP]Ariel Stulberg
