[LEFT]Red Lobster is rolling into Harlem at 261-267 W. 125th St. to anchor a new project next door to the Apollo Theater.
The ubiquitous seafood chain has leased 9,500 square feet on two levels for a 300-seat restaurant in the new $14 million retail project being developed by Grid Properties and the Gotham Organization in conjunction with the Harlem Commonwealth Council.
Designed by BLT Architects, the 28,000-square-foot project, when completed at the end of the year, will sit diagonally across Eighth Avenue from the trio’s earlier entertainment and retail complex, Harlem USA.

Red Lobster back in Pennsy was always a nice experience at a fair price, still IS. But THEN they opened in Times Square and DOUBLED their prices for the touristas...too rich for my blood (and for chain restaurant.)

I wonder how they'll price this new Harlem place?

I'll give it a try...and maybe catch something at the Apollo.

I agree in certain ways because as a kid from the suburbs, see chains in the City is crazy. We used to always get made fun of because we had places like that. Funny, i know people who will tell me their "poor" but eat at Applebees etc more than many "rich" kids i knew.

It also hurts because its like the community couldnt make its own successful chain themselves. No one in the area ever knew how to make some good seafood? Its sort of how Brentwood got taken over by Puetro Ricans, then it got taken over by other hispanics/latinos. Its like they didnt support/work enough to keep the storefronts.

That said, I guess its better than a candleshop or shoe store(which im sure people would pay $100 for jordans made in NYC by someone making $15 an hour.)

125th will soon be completely Disneyfied just like 42nd and the rest of Times Square. Harlem will continue to gentrify and 125th will be the commercial hub for the yuppies. I don't think Manhattan can afford to have middle or lower class housing for much longer given the demand for housing and the cachet associated with living in Manhattan. The island of Manhattan was destined to be reserved exclusively for the rich.
