 Feast your eyes on this $11.2M NYC eatery turned mansion

A 25-foot-wide Greenwich Village “gold coast” mansion has hit the market for $11.25 million.

But you’ll have to clean your plate before moving in.

The 19th-century, 10-bedroom, 10½-bathroom residence is currently home to the restaurant Casa Apicii

But the new buyer will have the option of returning the home to single-family status.

It was formerly home to The Lion, the famed club that provided exposure to stars like Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan, Truman Capote, and Joan Rivers.

The five-story townhouse, at 62 W. Ninth St., dates to 1839, when it was built for William Beach Lawrence, US Ambassador to the UK and lieutenant governor of Rhode Island.

An interior of 62 West 9th Street.
