The British are coming! To Hudson Yards, that is.

London-based rhubarb, a major hospitality company in England, plans to open new restaurants at 30 Hudson Yards and at the Hudson Yards Shops & Restaurants, the New York Post reported. The restaurant at the mall will occupy 5,800 square feet on the fifth floor. The mall, which is expected to open in March 2019, is anchored by Neiman Marcus, though the Post reported in September that the company plans to downsize its flagship store.

At 30 Hudson Yards, rhubarb plans to open a 10,000-square-foot restaurant on the tower’s 92nd floor — above the outdoor observation deck. The tower is expected to open by the end of 2019.

The new restaurants will mark rhubarb’s first expansion outside Britain. The hospitality company operates Sky Garden on the top floor of 20 Fenchurch in London, better known as the “walkie-talkie tower.”

“It’s always been our desire to go to New York,” rhubarb CEO P.B. Jacobse told the Post. “I lived there in the 1990s when I worked at the Waldorf Astoria for five years.” The Hudson Yards venues will employ more than 250 people, he said. [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel
