Yes, we know chains are evil. And no, we don’t want our
beloved city over-run by big brands forcing long-time neighborhood
favorites out of business. But sometimes even we need to make exceptions.
Especially when pancakes are involved.
The Post is reporting
that IHOP—once known as the International House of Pancakes—is in talks to join
Red Lobster, Applebees, and Baba Gump Shrimp Company in the one and only Times Square.
The California-based all-day breakfast chain,
with over 1,319 locations world-wide, would occupy a 23,000-square-foot, 3-floored
space at 1540 Broadway (between 45th and 46th). The chain already
has a location on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard in addition to those in
Brooklyn, Staten Island Queens and Jersey.
