The Four Seasons Restaurant is contemplating a move to SL Green Realty and Vornado Realty Trust’s 43-story building at 280 Park Avenue, located between 48th and 49th streets.

The restaurant — where a Pablo Picasso painting was removed last fall after a legal dispute — is currently located inside Aby Rosen’s Seagram Building at 99 East 52nd Street, according to the New York Observer. The restaurant is locked in a lease through July 2016, the website reported.

Japanese restaurant Haru most recently occupied the 18,000-square-foot space at 280 Park Avenue.

A spokesperson for Rosen’s RFR Realty told the Observer that “RFR is in contact with the tenant and in discussions regarding their lease, which expires in the summer of 2016.” [NYO] — Claire Moses
