IHOP to Open in West Village in November

MANHATTAN — West Village residents soon won't have far to go for stacks of pancakes from IHOP

The restaurant signed a 49-year lease last week for 80 Carmine St., the broker who represented the franchisee said Friday. 

Trihop, which owns IHOP franchise rights in the Tri-State area, signed for the triangular property bordered by Carmine and Downing streets and Seventh Avenue South on May 21, Kevin Salmon of Salmon & Marshall Real Estate Investments said. 

The new pancake house — which will join locations in the East Village and Harlem — is slated to open in November and have 10,000 square feet, with a first floor, basement and enclosed patio, The Real Deal first reported.

IHOP will open a West Village location at 80 Carmine St. in fall 2012, a broker on the deal said June 1, 2012.

Salmon said he expected the location to cater to early birds and night owls alike. 

"I think it works because Varick is a nightclub street," he said. "It will work for IHOP's night business and for neighborhood residents for breakfast, too." 

IHOP's East Village location, which has a nightclub-style bouncer and has fielded neighborhood complaints about the strong smell of bacon outside, is open 24 hours a day.

Trihop did not immediately respond to an inquiry about the expected hours of the West Village location. 

IHOP plans to open more than 25 new locations in the Tri-State area, Trihop owner Ben Ashkenazy told The Real Deal last October.
