HELL’S KITCHEN, NY – A hearty cheesesteak restaurant and a Spanish tapas restaurant are among the new restaurants coming to Hell’s Kitchen in the coming months.
The upcoming six restaurants will be presented to a 4 community council committee on Tuesday as their owners sought council approval to obtain liquor licenses. They are among dozens of new restaurants that Patch has covered in recent months as the city recovers from the depths of the pandemic.
Here are the new companies we heard about this week:
Friedman’s (483 10th Ave., between West 36th and 37th Street):
- This will be another outpost of Friedman’s, the American comfort food restaurant with locations throughout the city, including just one block south at 450 10th Ave. (the status of this restaurant was unclear).
- Italian dishes on the menu include a Caesar salad, lasagna, spaghetti and grilled Atlantic salmon.
- Registered under the LLC “Mercado by Friedman’s”, the restaurant will be open every day from 10 am to midnight and will be able to accommodate 110 people.
Olde City Cheesesteaks & Brew (576 Ninth Ave., between West 41st and 42nd Street):
- As the name suggests, Olde City will be serving sandwiches – with fresh buns from Le Bus bakery – filled with items like steak, broccoli rabe and provolone, roast pork and buffalo chicken. Shareable items will include mozzarella triangles, garlic-coated cheddar and buffalo cauliflower bites, while a ‘sweet tooth’ section of the menu includes six flavors of milkshakes and a ‘fresh cookie’.

It will accommodate 152 people indoors and 30 people outdoors, with features such as a cellar bar and lounge. It will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.
