    What to Know

    • Sea Grill, Rock Center Cafe and Cucina at Rockfeller Center will close down next year as the restaurants' landlord explores other businesses

    • The three restaurants have been serving hungry visitors for around three decades

    The eatery scene at tourist-packed Rockefeller Center will see some changes next year as three iconic restaurants are expected to close down.

    Commercial real estate company, Tishman Speyer, which leases space to Patina Restaurant Groups' Sea Grill, Rock Center Cafe and Cucina, says the restaurants will be closing in early 2020 as it explores other businesses for replacement.

    "This is a unique moment to develop new ideas for the iconic spaces at Rockefeller Center, and we are still in the early stages of the process," the company said in a statement to News 4.

    Steps away from The Rink at Rockefeller Center in the winter and Summer Garden & Bar, the three restaurants have been serving hungry visitors for around three decades.

    "Our goal, as always, is to provide an exceptional experience for our tenants, and New Yorkers and visitors from around the world who enjoy the Center every day," a spokeperson for Tishman Speyer said.
