New restaurant opens in NYC after months of planning, opening with more than 20 locations
New York City restaurants will be the first to open in a new citywide district this summer.
The Asian restaurant chain, Restaurant in the Park, is coming to the city with 20 locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn and will open at a later date in Queens, according to the New York Times.
The restaurant chain said it expects to hire 50 full-time employees, with a goal to employ 200 people by fall.
More than 100 restaurants in the area are expected to open this summer, according the Times.
A restaurant at the new location will be open for brunch, a breakfast buffet and a dinner menu.
The new location is set to open by August, according Restaurant in a Park.
“It’s not about the location,” co-owner Jason Kim said.
“It’s about the experience.
This will be an extension of our community.
It’s not just a restaurant, it’s a community.”
The chain has opened in other major cities in the U.S. and abroad.
Its location in Los Angeles will open next month, the Times reported.
The chain, founded in 2000, has been in Brooklyn since 2005.
The restaurants locations have been expanded since its inception.
The restaurant in the park is located in the new section of the Empire State Building, near the plaza where the Empire state building once stood.
