A new Chinese restaurant with a playful Panda theme is coming to West Harlem.
Panda Harlem is moving into the 5,000-square-foot space at 2331 12th Avenue and 133rd Street last occupied by rum hall Solomon & Kuff.
The menu, according to its website, will include classics like dumplings and fried rice, plus mains such as wok-charred filet mignon and "Beijing Chicken" with red bean sauce and candied walnuts.
The restaurant first hinted at its arrival with a series of small Panda paintings that went up along its industrial exterior in early December.
One shows a panda wearing a gold "Harlem" necklace. Another includes the word "panda" written in a neon-like pink font and an arrow pointing to what will presumably be the entrance.
According to information recently posted on its Instagram account, the restaurant is planning to open in February.
