Chef Marcus Samuelsson, founder of the Red Rooster, plans to open a new restaurant at a nearly-complete luxury residential complex in Greenpoint.
Samuelsson inked a lease for more than 4,000 square feet at the base of the Greenpoint at 21 India Street , the New York Post reported. The 40-story rental tower is being developed by Mack Real Estate Group, Palin Enterprises and Urban Development Partners. Designed by Ismael Leyva, 21 India Street has 287 rental units on the lower 27 floors and 95 condominiums above.
It’s not yet clear what kind of eatery Samuelsson plans for the space, though it will include an outdoor space overlooking the East River. The Ethiopian-Swedish chef opened the Red Rooster in Harlem in 2010, and last year, co-owner Andrew Chapman partnered with L+M Development Partners to purchase the restaurant’s home at 310 Lenox Avenue for $21 million.
