Jean-Georges to open a Fish-Eataly in Pier 17

Pier 16 Pier 17September 9, 2015- The Post reports, “Howard Hughes Corp. has landed a big fish as its South Street Seaport’s culinary anchor — Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

The great chef and his business partner Phil Suarez have signed a lease/partnership contract with NYSE-listed Hughes to launch two major Seaport projects — a 40,000 square-foot, seafood-themed marketplace inside the landmarked Tin Building and a 10,000 square-foot restaurant in a rebuilt Pier 17.

Vongerichten’s involvement “is a done deal, signed, sealed and delivered,” exuberant Hughes CEO David R. Weinreb told us. He said the new Pier 17, now under construction, is on track to open in mid-2017.”
