Harlem’s Finest is Pan-Fried, To-Go!

Charles Gabriel, the James Beard nominated chef and Harlem icon, has been serving his famous pan-fried chicken and fixins’ in New York for over 30 years. Gabriel originally hails from North Carolina, where his mother taught him the secret of pan-frying. His first restaurant enticed customers on 8th Avenue between 152nd and 153rd Streets. In 2021, Gabriel opened two new Charles Pan-Fried Chicken restaurants: one in Harlem on West 145th Street, and one on the Upper West Side of Manhattan on West 72nd Street with more to come. Using his mother’s famous pan-fried chicken recipe, Charles will be feeding hungry people in New York for years to come.
