The city’s first Charlie Palmer Steak restaurant will open in September at Charles S. Cohen’s 3 E. 54th St., replacing Rothmann’s steak house, which has closed. The 3,500 square-foot space will seat nearly 190 beef-lovers.

Although modern-American master Charlie Palmer first achieved fame at the original Aureole on East 61st Street, he’s cut a wider profile outside the city, despite launching a larger, Michelin-starred Aureole on West 42nd Street. His Charlie Palmer Group runs 11 restaurants around the US, including steak spots in Washington, DC and Las Vegas.

But he’s re-taken Manhattan with a vengeance. “We’ve been searching for a location for Charlie Palmer Steak in New York for quite a few years,” said Palmer. Lease terms were not released.
The new beef palace will boast lots of natural light and brighter trim to set off dark wood and leather, and floor-to-ceiling front windows.

Palmer will also run the restaurants at the soon-to-open Knickerbocker Hotel on 42nd Street and next week launches Crimson & Rye in the Lipstick Building.

At another Cohen property, the D&D Building on Third Avenue, he’s turning cafe/event space Astra into larger Upper Story.
