According to a new real estate listing, they are:
"Following their tremendous success at The Shelburne Hotel in Murray Hill, in keeping with the hotel-based business model, RARE will be relocating from their location in the West Village to a larger restaurant in The Chelsea Wyndham Hotel.
Fans of Rare will still be able to get their burgers at the Shelburne, but it's really a different animal. Those interested in the space can find more info here.
