Wegmans, one of the most beloved grocery chains in America, will open its first Manhattan store in 2023, the company said Thursday.

The store will be at 770 Broadway, the site of the recently shuttered Astor Place Kmart. It is expected to open in the second half of that year.

If triathlete Katie Zaferes had a sushi roll named after her, it would have ice cream, she says. Swimmer Bowe Becker isn't sure what ingredients his would have, but he knows it would be deep-fried.

The 30-year lease for the street and lower levels of the building will give the store 82,000 square feet of space.

Wegmans, which already operates one location in Brooklyn, consistently lands in industry top-10 lists, including a #2 ranking in Food & Wine's latest list of America's best grocery stores.
