Eater has learned that Fatburger, the magical burger franchise that is based primarily in Los Angeles, is finalizing a deal at 189 Bleecker Street (the Northwest corner of Bleecker and Macdougal Streets) for its first New York City location. The property boasts 1000 square feet on street level and another 1,500 below grade, which should be ample room to create a monumental Fatburger craze in New York. As they have done elsewhere with Queen Latifa, there is a celebrity involved here, Pharrell Williams. Sources tell us that the deal is close, however there do remain certain issues related to financing to work through (which is one reason the location isn't yet listed as coming soon). More to come.
