Newmark brings new eatery to Port Authority space.

Newmark Knight Frank Retail has announced the leasing of 625 Eighth Avenue, located at Port Authority Bus Terminal, to Metro Marche, a new restaurant concept from the joint efforts of two famed Manhattan food operators, Steve Tenedios and Simon Oren.

The new full service restaurant, due to open shortly, will occupy 4,100 s/f on the ground floor, plus a 1,000 s/f basement space, giving it a total of 55 feet of frontage along Eighth Avenue between 41st and 42nd Streets.

Carole Greene, director at Newmark Knight Frank Retail, represented the tenant, while Carrol Bennett, manager of retail leasing for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, was the agent for the space.

The surrender of the Silver Bullet Saloon's lease was handled by Moe Gold of KGW Associates.

"The concept is a unique blending of Steve's and Simon's creative genius combining Metro Marche, a full service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner with Cafe Metro, a retro 50's-style quick service cafe," said Greene.

"This is a perfect amenity to the Bus Terminal's main entrance and shouts 'welcome' to the thousands of people who commute, live and work in this dynamic and rapidly changing area." Continued Bennett, "Metro Marche is an excellent addition to the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

"The opening of this restaurant is part of the Port Authority's continuing efforts to significantly enhance the quality of the retail offerings for our customers and the surrounding community we serve."

"We firmly believe that this is just the concept that people have been waiting for in the area and is terrific for the Port Authority's revitalization program," said Tenedios.

"What makes us unique is that we not only cater to the commuter consumer base, but also the local residence and business offices that need a great restaurant for their business lunches or casual dining.

We are particularly excited about our menu's range, as well as the stellar selection of fine wines and unique beers.

"This really is a thrilling time for all parties involved."
