Harlem Bespoke:  Charle's Pan Fried Chicken on 8th Avenue by 132nd Street was just written up in Gothamist and the beloved local business has suffered a daily loss of over half the usual business.  Charle's Gabriel has been in Harlem for decades and originally started up cooking for the legendary Copeland's before branching out on his own way before trendy soul food spots would arrive in the neighborhood.  The modest restaurant was actually shortlisted for the James Beard Foundation Award back in 2018 but is currently having a hard time staying open.  Those who want to show support should order takeout or delivery or make one of those larger donations to help feed the needy during the shutdown.   More on Charle's Pan Fried can be found on Gothamist: LINK 2020
