Lee NYC’s Kapnick Brings Michelin-Starred Eatery to Harlem

Lee & Associates NYC’s Mark Kapnick recently completed three retail leases, including a Michelin-Starred restaurant, in three different neighborhoods – Harlem, Murray Hill and Soho. Sushi Inoue, the first Michelin-Starred restaurant in Harlem, will move in just below the new Apollo Theater.  

The restaurant plans to open at 223 W. 125th St. in the first quarter of 2022. The 5,485-square-foot lease is for 15 years. Kapnick represented the tenant and, with Lee NYC colleague Stan Lindenfeld, represented landlord 223 West 125h Street LLC. 

Wow Wine & Spirits has leased 4,600 square feet at 10 Park Ave. in Murray Hill, making this its 11th location. Kapnick represented the tenant, while his colleagues Peter Braus, JP Sutro, and Morris Dweck represented ownership. 

In SoHo, Adinas Jewels will take over the former Bally space at 68 Prince St. Kapnick represented ownership and Breakwater Holdings’ Roy Dervich represented Adinas.
