Popular Southern restaurant Leroy Fox has plans to come to South End.

That’s according to permits filed with the city of Charlotte. Leroy Fox is currently a staple of Cotswold and owned by the team that also runs Mortimer’s at the EpiCentre.

The restaurant would be in the corner spot of 1616 Center.

Though it’s unclear if a deal has been finalized, the location would be on Camden Road in the same building that will house the new Fidelli Kitchen.

It’s unclear what the timeframe will be.

Inquiries to Leroy Fox’s management team and to the leasing office of 1616 Center were not returned.

An open question: Can Leroy Fox’s fried chicken compete with Price’s Chicken Coop?

Leroy Fox openly markets itself as a fried chicken place. In this new location, it would be only steps from Charlotte’s most famous fried chicken joint — Price’s.

To be fair, they are two very different experiences. We’ll see what happens.
