Maman Will Open Another Tribeca Outpost

When I saw there has been no sign of activity inside the former American Flatbread space at 205 Hudson, where a kosher restaurant is supposed to be opening, I went onto the Department of Buildings website, where I discovered that paperwork was recently filed week for “Interior commercial renovation of existing UG6 commercial space including the installation of new non-load bearing partitions, plumbing fixtures, wall and floor finishes.” At first, I figured it was for the kosher restaurant, but then I dug deeper—and one of the names on the filings is Benjamin Sormonte, a co-founder of Maman with his partner, Elisa Marshall. Marshall confirmed that the couple (who live in Tribeca) will be doing something “Maman-style” in the space, but we’ll have to wait to learn more….

Assuming there aren’t other Mamans in the works, this will be the company’s eighth outpost. Six of the existing Mamans are cafés, and the seventh is a shop.
