T-Bar Steak & Lounge will relocate to 116 E. 60th St. on the Upper East Side

Heller Organization Serves Up New Home for T-Bar Steak & Lounge

The Heller Organization’s Michael Gavin and Joshua Singer have arranged a 12-year lease at 116 E. 60th St. for T-Bar Steak & Lounge. The expansive three-level, 4,500-square-foot space, formerly occupied by Ivy Lane, is situated between Park and Lexington avenues. 

“T-Bar is the gold standard for modern steak house dining,” said Gavin. “East 60th Street is an excellent location with a Park Avenue pedigree worthy of the brand.” 

Added Singer, “Working with owners Tony Fortuna and Derek Axelrod was a pleasure and we are thrilled to have found a space that is large enough to accommodate their needs. We were able to finish the lease negotiation within weeks from identifying the space.” 

T-Bar, an Upper East Side destination at 1278 Third Ave. for more than 27 years until the pandemic, is anticipated to open at its new location in early spring. Representing owner Solil Management, LLC in-house was Jeremy Modest.
