The New Chick-Fil-A In NYC Was Shut Down After Health Violations? Yup, Sounds About Right





Gothamist- New York City’s first towering Chick-Fil-A has hit a stumbling block in its plans for domination of the city’s fast food fried chicken landscape. A Christmas Eve inspection by the Department of Health uncovered a host of critical violations, resulting in 59 violation points, squarely in C territory. On December 30th, the restaurant closed its doors, indicating it would reopen for breakfast on January 4th.

The five critical violations included food held at improper temperatures and food not cooled by an approved method. Filth flies, food not protected from possible contamination and soiled wiping cloths were also cited. A previously ungraded inspection earlier in the month returned with 39 violation points, indicating things got worse—not better—between the two inspections.  The restaurant itself was not shuttered by the DOH so it appears that management of some kind felt a self-imposed reboot was necessary.


Southerner known for being friendly and religious comes to New York, gets turned out, and becomes a filthy son of a bitch?  Tale as old as time.  Sure it’s usually the best-looking girl from her high school moving up North to become a model in the big city.  But it still holds true for Chick-Fil-A.  One day you are the belle of everyone’s eyes that went to school South of the Mason-Dixon line, the next day you have bugs crawling all over you in this Godforesaken city.

And 59 violation points?!?  Jesus.  In my mind, you have to be filled with rat piss, shit, and/or cum to get 59 violation points.  I love Chick-Fil-A, but I am going nowhere near the one in NYC.  Because not vermin proofing your restaurant may fly down South, but if you pull that shit up here, you will have a roach orgy going on in the kitchen before your grand opening.  Be better, Chick-Fil-A.  Your restaurants are basically the only places in the city that have nice people in it.  Try to stay open for more than three months without closing after a health inspection.
