Chad Ochocinco may be a media w—e but he’s got a lot of heart with a set of matching deep pockets. The Patriots wide receiver dropped almost $8,000 on a fried chicken dinner for 200 fans at the legendary soul food restaurant Sylvia’s in Harlem, NYC.
Ocho sent a message via Twitter to let fans know he’d buy dinner for the first 200 people to get to Sylvia’s. Those who made it to the Harlem institution before the cut off were treated to Sylvia’s specialties including fried chicken; barbecue ribs; macaroni and cheese, and red velvet cupcakes (pictured above).
Sources at the restaurant tell TMZ, Ocho spent $7,914 on grub altogether — but they wouldn’t specify how much he tipped.
Afterwards, Ocho mugged for the camera with a few fans.
