Another restaurant is set to open in NoMad, offering a chic new outlet for all the carnivores out there. Rocco Steakhouse has signed a 15-year lease on the ground floor of 72 Madison Avenue, located between East 27th Street and East 28th Street. The restaurant will occupy the entirety of the 12-story building’s retail space.
Rocco Steakhouse is owned by Rocca Trotta, Pete Pjetrovic and Jeff Kalenovic. This is Trotta’s first Manhattan restaurant, although he also owns Caracalla in Long Island and Frank’s Steakhouse in Westchester.
Rocco Steakhouse is an exciting addition to the growing wave of eateries opening and thriving in NoMad – steakhouses in particular. The highly anticipated Prime & Kosher Steakhouse is set to open this summer at 31 East 28th Street. Both restaurants will join the ranks of Ben & Jack’s Steakhouse, which offers dinner and a prix fixe lunch menu, and is frequently patronized by celebrities and locals alike.
There is not yet any word on the menu, but Rocco Steakhouse plans to utilize 72 Madison Avenue’s high ceilings and full basement to create a lush dining atmosphere and hopes to be one of the best steakhouses in NYC. We have no doubt that Rocco Steakhouse will also prove to be a popular spot for client dinners, nights on the town and more.
