LLNYC's look at listings:
Jeffrey Lefcourt, who co-founded the restaurant group that owns the popular restaurant The Smith, has just listed his Upper West Side townhouse at 313 West 80th Street for $8.3 million, per city records.
Lefcourt and his wife Heather paid $3.86 million for the home in 2007, so this would be quite a nice return (if they can get it). The 4,396-square-foot home was built in 1894, and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a den, three wood-burning fireplaces, a gym, media room and over 1,200 square feet of outdoor space, with a garden, two terraces and a roof deck. And did we mention the chef’s kitchen? Richard Pretsfelder of Leslie Garfield has the listing.
Lefcourt is a co-founder of Corner Table restaurant group, which runs all five locations of The Smith (four locations in New York and one in D.C.). His group also owned Jane restaurant in Soho until January of this year, when they sold it to RBM Group (of Sarabeth’s). His wife Heather is an art therapist. -- Isabel Schwab
