ABS Finds Park Slope Home for Expanding Terroir Wine Bar; Restaurant Officially Opens
NEW YORK, N.Y. (October 29, 2012) ABS Partners Real Estate, LLC, one of New York City’s foremost real estate services firms, announced today that Terroir Wine Bar restaurant group has officially opened its newest location at 284 Fifth Avenue within the bourgeoning Park Slope restaurant scene.
ABS Managing Director of Retail Leasing Mark Tergesen, who previously helped Terroir secure three Manhattan locations, represented Terroir on the transaction.
"This particular corner drew tremendous interest from numerous restaurants and bars,” said Tergesen, who is a resident of the community. "The landlord recognized that Fifth Avenue was in a transition and Terroir’s combination of small plates and a curated list of wine and beer would fit in well with the neighborhood, co-tenants at the property and the diverse blend of dining options along Fifth Avenue."
The self-proclaimed "Elitist Wine Bar for Everyone" occupies 2,200 square feet at 284 Fifth Avenue at the corner of First Street next to dining mainstay Blue Ribbon. Open every day and offering brunch on the weekends, the wine bar is comprised of 1,100 square feet each on the ground floor and the lower level.
Co-owner Paul Grieco, a sommelier who has partnered with chef Marco Canora to launch the Terroir restaurants and Hearth in the East Village, said the restaurant group was drawn to Park Slope’s vibrant neighborhood.
"There is something uniquely special about Park Slope and we are excited to be a part of this community’s fabric,” said Grieco. “One of the reasons why we chose to offer weekend brunch is because we knew it is a popular pastime here and hoped our comfort-food menu would resonate with diners.”
Terroir also has locations at 413 East 12th Street, 24 Harrison Street, 439 Third Avenue and at the corner of 15th Street and Tenth Avenue on the High Line.
