WHITE PLAINS—Asian Legend, a modern Asian-inspired restaurant is coming to the City Center in downtown White Plains. The restaurant is expected to open in September 2018.

The new 2,919-square foot restaurant at 23 Mamaroneck Ave. is the site of the former Asian Temptation space. The lease deal was announced by RHYS, a Stamford, CT-based commercial real estate firm.

City Center is a 600,000 square foot development in Downtown White Plains consisting of retail, restaurant and entertainment space and is located at the corner of Mamaroneck Avenue and Main Street. Other tenants include Target, Shoprite, Nordstrom Rack, Barnes & Noble and Morton’s Steakhouse.

RHYS represented the landlord, Kite Realty Group that recently completed substantial renovations to the building that include façade work, new escalators, opening of commons areas to create better access, way signs and the addition of a valet line for restaurant patrons.

Last year, RHYS also represented Kite Realty in relocating Morton’s Steakhouse, which opened in June at City Center in the space previously occupied by Legal Sea Food. Morton’s relocated from the Source at White Plains at One Maple Ave. in White Plains. In October, Club Champion Golf, a custom golf club fitting retailer with over 20 locations nationwide, moved into City Center.

“Asian Legend is going to be a great addition as a new vision for City Center continues to be ushered in,” said RHYS CEO Cory Gubner. “They will enjoy a prominent presence right in the middle of the city and will no doubt take advantage of all the amazing benefits of operating in Downtown White Plains, alongside so many other retailers and restaurants in City Center.”
