Gary M. Talarico, a managing director at private equity firm Sun Capital Partners, and his wife Linda Filardi spent $10 million on a duplex in a prewar cooperative on the Upper East Side, according to city records published today. The unit, #8/9D at 875 Park Avenue, between 77th and 78th streets, went into contract in May, Streeteasy.com indicates. The apartment has six bedrooms, four bathrooms and a fireplace, according to the listing on Sotheby’s International’s Web site. Talarico is the head of Sun Capital Partners’ New York office. Sun Capital Partners made headlines last year when one of its affiliates purchased Friendly Ice Cream for $337 million. Much of the company’s portfolio consists of retailers and restaurants. It owns 10 restaurant chains with some 2,200 locations, including Boston Market and Bruegger’s Bagels. Filardi is an attorney.
