Soul Food Institution Coming to Harlem’s Sugar Hill

Harlem soul food institution Charles Pan-Fried Chicken has signed a lease for approximately 750 square feet on the ground floor of L+M Development Partners’ 340 W. 145th St. in Harlem’s Sugar Hill neighborhood. The new space, expected to open this summer, will be the restaurant’s largest location to date.

L+M’s leasing team brokered the deal in-house, while Albert Halawani for Kassin Sabbagh Realty represented the restaurant. Charles Pan-Fried Chicken, a restaurant founded more than 30 years ago by Charles Gabriel, has become a Harlem favorite.
“We are excited to welcome beloved New York City institution Charles Pan-Fried Chicken to a brand-new space in the heart of a historic Harlem neighborhood,” said Joseph Milone, director of retail at L+M. “His old-school skillet-fried chicken has drawn long lines for years and this new space will bring the iconic soul food to even more New Yorkers.”
