Remember that Chick-fil-A that opened in NYC last year? Well, in case you've been living under a rock, it shut down temporarily due to a plethora of disgusting health code violations.

After voluntarily shutting their doors to address their food safety issues, Chick-fil-A officially resumed their sale of chicken sandwiches and waffle fries to New Yorkers yesterday.

A Chick-fil-A spokeswoman told CNBC, "[there] were six violations on the last health inspection, so we decided to voluntarily close the restaurant so that the team could focus solely on those issues—primarily the presence of fruit flies."

While Chick-fil-A customers are rejoicing at the return of their spicy chicken sandwiches (#3 with waffle fries and a vanilla milkshake-- no cherry), they’ll soon notice a pretty significant addition to the menu.

As of next week, Chick-fil-A's nationwide will begin the sale of kale as an alternative to a side of waffle fries (for an upcharge of $0.94). Customers will also be able to purchase a kale and broccolini dish, topped with dried cherries and nuts, tossed with a maple vinaigrette dressing.

Unfortunately, the kale option comes at a price.

For anyone who loves Chick-fil-A coleslaw, we’d highly recommend getting in your fill now before it disappears from menus nationwide next week.


David Farmer, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of menu strategy and development told Business Insider that "the days of adding things to the menu without taking things away are behind us."

Whether or not you’ll be indulging in some healthy kale or sticking with the traditional chicken sandwich, we’re pretty sure that the lines for Chick-fil-A will soon be what they were prior to the voluntary closure.
