Lee NYC Arranges Oyster Bar Location for Tribeca

Lee & Associates NYC represented Crew Restaurant Group in 1,500-square-foot lease at 109 West Broadway in Tribeca. The yet-to-be-named oyster bar is the latest venture in the group’s collection of experience-driven, maritime-inspired restaurants, and is slated to open next February. 

Crew operates local hotspots Grand Banks, Drift In, and others, and will utilize its newest location to offer a year-round authentic oyster-bar experience in Downtown Manhattan.  

A Lee & Associates team of Peter Braus and Morris Dweck represented Crew.  The landlord, New York based ASG Equities, was represented by George Karnoupakis. 

“Crew has established some of the most unique and memorable restaurant experiences in Manhattan and has earned a number of accolades for its innovative and creative concepts,” said Braus. “We’re thrilled to assist in bringing their latest concept to fruition, which will be a fresh and inviting escape from everyday city life—it’s exactly what the neighborhood needs.”
