Shiki Omakase snags lease at 71 W. Houston Street

Japanese restaurant Shiki Omakase has secured a lease to open a location along Houston Street, at the intersection of SoHo and Greenwich Village. 

Negotiations were handled in-house by Manhattan Skyline Management Corp. 

The space at 500 square feet includes 25 feet of store frontage on the SoHo facing side of West Houston along with 13-foot ceilings.

The restaurant, whose name translates to “four seasons” in Japanese, is the latest venture of prominent chefs En Lin and Jackie Zheng and will feature a popular Japanese fare where chefs choose ingredients and curated menus for each diner. 

“En and I share a passion for sourcing the best seasonal seafood from around the world and offering high-quality dining experiences,” Zheng said. “Opening our own omakase room has long been a dream of ours, and we’re excited to bring our food to an expanded audience as locals and guests alike are eager to get out of their homes and explore new cuisine.”

On the second floor of 71 W. Houston, a 3,000-square-foot space that previously belonged to the Pegu Club is available for lease. 

71 W. Houston is situated at the intersection of SoHo and Greenwich Village, is steps away from New York University and Washington Square Park. Additionally, the site is blocks away from numerous subway and public transit lines and other retail establishments like Dos Caminos, Modern Acupuncture, Starbucks, Thomas Taft Salon, Van Leeuwen and Bulthaup. 

The flagship location Elvis + Elvin, a luxury beauty brand, is next door at 73 W. Houston, which is also owned by Manhattan Skyline. Manhattan Skyline additionally operates multiple nearby residential buildings, such as 55 Thompson, Soho Court, Sullivan Mews and The Villager.
