New Neighbor: Ralph's Coffee

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership is excited to welcome the timeless American spirit of the Polo Ralph Lauren brand with a fresh atmosphere and the rich, flavorful blend from La Colombe Coffee Roasters that is Ralph's Coffee. Ralph's Coffee represents the Flatiron experience by showcasing the convergence of style, flavor, and authenticity.

From the Ralph's Team: "The Flatiron District is an iconic New York neighborhood. The bustling energy of lower Fifth Avenue is a perfect complement to the fresh and authentic spirit of Ralph’s Coffee and an ideal location for the brand’s first-ever freestanding outpost."

Ralph's Coffee has locations globally, including shops within flagship stores in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and on the Upper East Side, but the first-ever freestanding Ralph's Coffee Shop recently debuted in the Flatiron District. Ralph Lauren is continuing to engage consumers with experiential and unique expressions of the brand through the hospitality portfolio. "The smell of freshly brewed coffee evokes so many memories for me. Mostly of time spent with friends and family; the people I love. I wanted to develop these coffee blends in that spirit, and create a place where people could come together and take a break from their busy days," said Ralph Lauren.

 

The freestanding store serves Ralph's Coffee and Espresso as well as Ralph's American Breakfast Tea. Additionally, the store is the first to offer an Espresso Tonic—a refreshing spin on iced coffee with three shots of espresso, tonic water, and an orange slice. Ralph's special blends, Ralph's Roast, Decaf, and Espresso feature organically grown beans from Central America, South America, and Africa. The beans are roasted and packaged in the US by La Colombe, and the all-natural Swiss Water Process is used to decaffeinate. 

Baked fresh at The Polo Bar, some of Ralph's sweet treats include Ralph's Brownie and Ralph's Chocolate Chip Cookie. A curated array of Ralph’s Coffee apparel and accessories, including Ralph’s Coffee beans, signature tote bags, and graphic T-shirts are available for sale.

Ralph's Coffee in the Flatiron District maintains the aesthetic atmosphere of Ralph Lauren clothing stores and Ralph's Coffee shops around the globe with its hunter green tiled walls, white tin ceilings, painted white counters with marble tops, and colorfully geometric floor tiles. Black stools create window seating while a backlit Ralph's Coffee illuminates the coffee bar. The waitstaff dress in Ralph Lauren striped shirts and knit ties in the Ralph's Coffee signature green, along with denim and butchers' aprons embroidered with the Ralph's Coffee logo. 

Ralph's Coffee serves a range of varying interest points for each customer. Whether you sport the Ralph Lauren brand on the daily, consider yourself a coffee connoisseur, or you simply enjoy an aesthetically pleasing place to sit, Ralph's Coffee is a spot for anyone who lives or works in the Flatiron District.

Ralph’s Coffee is open Monday – Saturday from 7 am – 7 pm and Sunday from 8 am – 6 pm.

New Neighbor: Bourke Street Bakery

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership is thrilled to welcome Australian favorite Bourke Street Bakery to the NoMad area of the Flatiron District. In their first U.S. location, Bourke Street Bakery NYC is bringing the quintessential Australian food experience to NYC introducing New Yorkers to sausage rolls, sourdough and serious coffee with a smile.

The famed bakery cafe which began with a cult following nearly 15 years ago on a quaint, tree-lined street in Sydney’s Surry Hills. It quickly became the beating heart of the neighbourhood with lines snaking around the corner. It now has 13 locations in Australia and is considered an iconic and must-visit destination for locals and visitors alike. The bakery is mentioned in every Australian good food guide list and is now open in Flatiron with the man who began it all, Chef Paul Allam, at the helm. He will be in the kitchen working the ovens daily from 4 am.

Paul began traveling regularly to NYC twelve years ago and fell in love with the lifestyle and energy of the city inspiring him to relocate here with his wife and three children.

"When we arrived from Sydney we were looking all over NYC for the right site we wanted something special where we could make everything on site. We wanted that immediacy that our customers could see us making everything they bought...," explains Allam. "This particular spot that we settled on in Flatiron is actually the same building as The James Hotel but is a separate entrance on 28th –  it really has something special about it. The building is landmarked for a reason."Beyond the street frontage, inside the empty space we fell in love with the lofty high ceilings and industrial beams and there was enough room for us to build a bakery and café. You could feel a bygone era and it just spoke to us."

Bourke Street Bakery is a celebration of everyday pleasures: good pastries, sourdough breads, small-batch coffee, natural wine, craft beer & seasonal plates. With a menu inspired by the bread oven & seasons, the bakery provides rustic, fresh, handmade food you want to eat daily. All items are made in-house, including the bakery range, house-made cheeses, house-churned butter, juices, jams, and even ketchup. Much of the flour used is from house-milled grains. Paul Allam has been excitedly developing new dishes with an American twist which will be baked daily, and he is also keen to introduce New Yorkers to some elevated Aussie classics.

 

The bakery offers sweet and savory favorites baked fresh throughout the day. Sweets include a cornucopia of traditional handmade pastries, cakes, tarts, pies, muffins, and cookies. (Be sure to try the famed ginger crème brulee tart with roasted pistachio.) A wide range of changing sourdough breads are also baked throughout the day. A large oven timetable chalkboard for locals to see when their favorite breads are coming out of the oven. 

A full open kitchen also offers an all-day menu including grab and go for those in a hurry as well as made to order items to sit down and enjoy. The diverse and vibrant menu features seasonal sandwiches, quick plates & salads. Elevated Australian classics include a pork & fennel sausage roll, lamb & harissa sausage roll, and a smoked bacon & egg brioche bun with gentleman’s relish.

 Visitors can expect great Australian coffee with a flavor profile of caramels, nuts, and milk chocolate, with a long finish. Natural & biodynamic wines and craft beer are also available. 

"I love the energy and vibrancy of NYC. I love the enthusiasm of the people. We have received such a warm welcome," says Allum. "I’m excited to introduce New Yorkers to Bourke Street Bakery food and casual approach. Serious food but very relaxed and casual service."

Bourke Street Bakery is open Monday through Saturday 7 am until 7 pm and Sunday 7 am until 5 pm.

Obicà's Solo Qui Cocktail

  • 1.5 ounces infused lemon vodka
  • 1 ounce fresh pineapply juice
  • 1 ounce citrus mix
  • 1/2 ounce sage syrup (simple syrup infused with fresh sage, then strained)

2019 Annual Meeting Recap

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership held its 13th Annual Meeting & Community Reception on Tuesday, June 4th at Grey Group's 200 Fifth Avenue headquarters. The event, along with the 2019 annual report, were themed “The Flatiron Experience,” and showcased the work of the BID and its partners to make Flatiron a neighborhood where property owners, businesses, residents, and visitors have exceptional experiences. 

“Flatiron and NoMad have so many assets and attributes that make it a wonderful mixed-use, 24-7 community, and we as a Partnership will continue to responsibly promote and strengthen this district’s distinction as one of New York City’s great neighborhoods,” said James Mettham, who became the BID's Executive Director in February. “We are deeply grateful to our Board of Directors and this community as a whole for making sure our collective impact never skipped a beat during a year of leadership transition.”

The annual meeting, which drew upwards of 220 attendees, featured remarks from District 2 City Councilmember Carlina Rivera. Later, a panel moderated by Matt McClure, Anchor/Reporter at Spectrum News NY1, highlighted innovative Flatiron businesses that are creating one-of-a-kind experiences for their customers. Panelists included Jennifer DiCesare, Retail Store Operations Manager, Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop; Jimmy T. Martin, Co-Founder, Brrrn; and Michelle Walder, General Manager, The NoMad Hotel.

The BID elected members to its Board of Directors, approved the FY 2020 budget, and presented its first-ever Robert B. Frankel Chairperson's Award to Gregg Schenker of ABS Partners Real Estate, who will be stepping down from his role as Chairman of the Board after 11 years of service. Frankel, the award’s namesake, passed away in 2018. He was an integral part of the 23rd Street Association, the precursor to the BID, and was the BID’s first chairman. The Frankel family presented the award to Schenker, along with long-serving Board treasurer Jim Buslik.
