The Cessna inside Norman’s Cay
Some sixteen months after first opening Norman’s Cay at 74 Orchard Street, co-owner Ryan Chadwick may soon unload the business. Shervin Nassi – proprietor of two-year-old Shervin’s Cafe in Alphabet City – is the hopeful suitor. This according to application materials on file with Community Board 3.
Norman’s Cay (and the symbiotic Spur Tree) hadn’t been on the market for sale, but the right price presented itself. “We didn’t want to sell and [Nassi] came in off the street and made an offer,” Chadwick told us in an email. Nevertheless, here we are. If the takover is approved, the deal will go through.
Nassi will appear before the SLA licensing subcommittee on Monday night to attain approval for this sale of assets. The deal to take over operations at 74 Orchard has reportedly been in the works for a couple months. He seeks to maintain the Norman’s Cay moniker, and keep much of the establishment as is. Some menu changes could happen, though.
If the sale goes through, it will reportedly have no effect on Chadwick’s other holding, Grey Lady at the corner of Allen and Delancey.
