when chick-fil-a arrived in new yawk,
it was like jesus arrived and was turning water to wine.
when that chick-fil-a opened up,
i kid you not,
the line to get inside spanned two blocks.
they had a dj outside playing music and everything.
it said “30 minutes/45 minutes/an hour/hour and a half…
before you get your chicken” as the line got deeper and deeper.
jamari fox wasn’t that excited for some chicken.
well chick-fil-a violated in another way that they had to shut it down…
New York City’s first towering Chick-Fil-A has hit a stumbling block in its plans for dominationof 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.
jamari fox also doesn’t eat anywhere that doesn’t have an “a” rating.
new yawk can be way too sketchy taking risks with restaurants.
i had chick-fil-a when i was down in florida.
it was just okay.
i’ve had a better chicken sammich at a hood spot.
one with an “a” rating.
