M&G Diner sign inside Streetbird Rotisserie, ‪Harlem‬ NYC

We stopped by Streetbird Rotisserie, the new ‪#‎Harlem‬ restaurant by chef Marcus Samuelsson, @marcuscooks which specializes in rotisserie ‪#‎chicken‬ and global street food. The food was delicious and we absolutely loved the ‪#‎vintage‬ ‪#‎neonsign‬ they had displayed inside the restaurant which we instantly recognized as once being on the facade of the famous, M&G Diner on 125th Street. We were big fans of this ‪#‎signage‬ with its interesting ‪#‎font‬ that also said "Southern Fried Chicken". The complete sign on M&G Diner can be seen in our feed and appears in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York". We are glad that at least part of the ‪#‎neon‬ ‪#‎sign‬ was salvaged and repurposed as so many of the large signs we have photographed over the years, have ended up in the dump.
