Tishman Speyer Brings Le Botaniste Restaurant to Bryant Park

Le Botaniste, an international restaurant serving plant-based cuisine, will open this spring at Tishman Speyer’s 11 W. 42nd St. located at Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan. The 3,700-square-foot restaurant will be the fifth Le Botaniste location in New York, its second partnership with Tishman Speyer following the location at 666 Third Ave., and will bring affordable healthy cuisine to Bryant Park. 

An agreement for the location at 11 W. 42nd was brokered in late 2022 by Brad Schwarz from Lee & Associates NYC, Le Botaniste’s New York-based commercial real estate advisors.

“We are delighted to welcome Le Botaniste to a second Tishman Speyer property this spring,” said Alissa Bersin, managing director, retail and restaurants at Tishman Speyer. “The new location will continue to expand the building’s culinary offerings to now include fast-casual plant-based cuisine.”
