The MTA announced yesterday, May 4, that seven new tenants are coming to Grand Central Terminal this year. From an Argentinian chophouse to a handmade lifestyle brand, these new tenants are bringing some business diversity to this major transportation hub.
The strong demand for Grand Central’s retail spaces coincides with Metro North’s ridership recovery and a returning abundance of foot traffic to the area.
Metro-North President Catherine Rinaldi states, “Grand Central Terminal is not just a transportation hub, it’s a destination in its own right. These incoming tenants recognize the vibrant atmosphere that makes the terminal so iconic will only increase when the Long Island Rail Road concourse opens this year so their timing could not be more perfect.”
The new tenants include the following:
- City Winery – a full functioning restaurant, bar, winery, and private events space.
- Cipriani – an Argentinian chophouse located adjacent to already existing restaurant Cipriani Dolci.
- Bourke Street Bakery – Sydney-born bakery brand serving breads, sweets, pastries, sandwiches, salads, and coffee.
- Luke’s Lobster – a family-owned lobster shack.
- Dirty Taco & Tequila – an urban taco shop offering L.A. street-style tacos, side dishes, and agua frescas.
- Lovepop – handcrafted pop-up cards and other products.
- Karma & Luck – A lifestyle brand selling handmade items from jewelry to home decor and more.
One tenant has already celebrated the opening of their doors this past March, while the other six are expected to be open by the close of this year.
