Owner Rustam Schoenfeld wants to relocate the restaurant that serves healthy cuisine from 62 Spring St., where it's been for 30 years, to 98 Kenmare St.
This wouldn't be the first time the restaurant has moved. In 1985, it moved from 146 Spring St. to its current home, tripling its size.
Schoenfeld told DNAinfo New York in an email that the move isn't a sure thing just yet, even though his application includes a 12-year-lease dated from March 1, 2015 to February 27, 2027, with an annual rent of $384,000, or $32,000 a month.
When asked why he wanted to move the restaurant, Schoenfeld said it was "premature" to discuss it.
"We hope to sign soon," Schoenfeld wrote. "There are a couple of unresolved issues that we are hoping to work out soon."
Before that, it was a lounge called Kenmare, which started out as a restaurant.
The new restaurant would hold a total of 134 seats, spanning two floors: a 2,400-square-foot basement and a 2,600-square-foot ground floor, plus a 1,000-square-foot sidewalk cafe encircled by shrubbery, according to the application.
Fourteen of those seats would be split between a six-foot-long bar and a second 12-foot-long bar, with the remaining 120 seats across 60 tables.
The application promises the eatery would close by midnight seven nights a week.
