Financier Patisserie — Peter Poulakakos’ pastry shop specializing in French pastries, espresso, coffee and savory dishes — leased its seventh location at 2 Astor Place. The 1,000-square-foot site, located just off the corner of Astor Place and Broadway, had previously been occupied by Cold Stone Creamery.
Winick Realty Group senior managing director Darrell Rubens and Annie Shinn acted as the exclusive leasing agents for Financier. As the brand’s exclusive agents for the last three years, Rubens and Shinn brought Financier to First Avenue and 54th Street, as well as 48th Street and Avenue of the Americas. They currently have additional leases out for Financier and are actively looking for more 800- to 2,000-square-foot locations throughout Manhattan.
Paul Berkman and Davi Berke of Newmark Knight Frank represented the landlord in this 10-year lease transaction.
