A Broad Street fast food joint has fried its last piece of chicken.

Eviction notices were taped Tuesday to the door of New York Fried Chicken & Biscuit at 501 W. Broad St. The orders state that owners Yasser Aramin, Musa Mansour and Jasser Khalil must vacate the property immediately.

It’s unclear when the restaurant closed.

A sign posted on the property says the 5,000-square-foot space is for lease, which calls to the phone number on the sign confirmed.

Franchise Real Estate Concepts LLC owns the building, according to city records. The property is assessed at $648,000. No building permits have been filed since 2011, city records show.

There are two other New York Fried Chicken outposts in Richmond. A location at 1822 Hull St. also closed in recent months, but it was not owned by the Broad Street location’s team, according to Ahmad Aziz, who manages the New York Fried Chicken at 3000 Meadow Bridge Road.

Aziz said his brother, Ahmad Bilal, formerly owned all the locations. Aziz said that his brother sold the Broad Street business and that the Southside location failed.

The Meadow Bridge Road location has no plans of closing, Aziz said.

Isn’t this lot a part of the VCU master plan? I’d be really surprised if VCU didn’t snatch it up (though, they’ll probably have to pay a premium).

As long as they don’t build a parking deck, I’ll be fine with anything other than what it is now (a restaurant and parking pad fitting for an out-parcel of a shopping center in Chesterfield but not on the main gateway into downtown Richmond from the west).

This business was an eyesore and a breeding place for crime. Good riddance. Almost anything, other than another fast food joint, will be an improvement.
