HELL’S KITCHEN — Wienerschnitzel, Swiss cheese fondue and escargots are returning to the neighborhood.
The decades-old Swiss-Austrian eatery Maria’s Mont Blanc Restaurant — which closed in May after losing a years-long battle to keep its home on West 48th Street — will reopen at 344 W. 52nd St., between Eighth and Ninth avenues, this fall, an attorney for the owner confirmed Thursday.
The more-than-30-year-old restaurant’s reincarnation will be called Mont Blanc 52, a Community Board 4 filing shows.
The eatery's longtime manager, Maria Lohmeyer, is staying on as day-to-day manager at the new venture, the filing shows.
Lohmeyer and her team waged an approximately five-year-long battle to remain on West 48th Street, but were ultimately evicted.
The restaurant’s new space on West 52nd Street was formerly occupied by the sushi spot Bamboo 52.
A menu filed with CB4 is identical to the one that appears on Mont Blanc’s website.
Neither Lohmeyer nor Mont Blanc owner Balz Eggimann could be reached for comment.
