Eater NY just revealed that Charle's Pan Fried Chicken on FDB by 132nd Street (the article mentions 152nd Street which is incorrect) just made the short list for this year's James Beard Foundation award. This prestigious nomination is usually set for expensive cloth-napkin eatery but Harlem's famous casual chicken spot that has been around for two decade has now received a major nod.
Everything is pretty much ordered at the counter and guests eat-in cafeteria style so anyone can drop by to see what all of the buzz is about without making a reservation. Check our original review on the new location of Charle's in our past post: LINK
