Carlos Suarez’s Casa Nela restaurant group is adding a fourth restaurant to its spread of Rosemary’s, Claudette, and Bobo. Because the West Village has treated him so well, the neighborhood is naturally home to number four, which will be at 1 Perry Street.
Suarez is keeping quiet on what the concept will be, but based on his usual handiwork, one can expect some straightforward, crowd-pleasing fare in a lovely setting, likely Italian or French. The 1,500-square-foot space originally ran $150 a square foot, but it’s unclear what Suarez agreed to for the 10-year lease.
Suarez got his start with Bobo’s, but of the Casa Nela restaurants, Rosemary’s is undoubtedly the biggest hit, even spawning a location in Tokyo. Suarez hasn’t opened a restaurant since the French Claudette, which debuted in 2014.
