Bakery Chain Comes to Midtown for First U.S. Location
Wolkonsky Bakery & Café will establish its first U.S. location at Jack Resnick & Sons’ 8 W. 40th St. in Midtown’s Bryant Park neighborhood. The bakery and café will encompass 8,100 square feet on three levels.
The bakery chain currently operates in 60 locations throughout Russia and the Ukraine. Wolkonsky plans to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will offer indoor and outdoor dining along with a take-out option. Opening is anticipated in late fall of this year.
“This shop will be an ideal amenity for the office workers, visitors and shoppers, who have been returning to the neighborhood in increasing numbers, and the perfect complement to the incomparable Bryant Park,” said Jonathan Resnick, president of Jack Resnick & Sons.
Jonathan W. Burke and Lena Roth of JW Burke Realty LLC represented Wolkonsky. Ownership was represented by an in-house leasing team of Brett Greenberg and Fran Delgorio.
