If you’ve ever been to Chick-Fil-A then you know just how juicy their chicken sandwiches are, paired with their perfectly cut waffle fries and a nice sweet tea or squeezed lemonade. Are you craving Chick-Fil-A for dinner now? I know I am!
If you are an enthusiast of the clean, friendly, chicken chain restaurant then you will be excited to know that they are opening the largest (and narrowest at only 15 feet wide) Chick-Fil-A ever! It is being called the “Mecca of all chicken shops.”
It gets even better: there will be a rooftop patio with a perfect view of the Freedom Tower.
The chain announced on Monday that they’re building the “largest Chick-fil-A ever” — a five-level, 12,000-square-foot restaurant complete with a rooftop seating — smack-dab in the middle of Manhattan’s Financial District. And since it’s situated just a half-mile from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, Chick-fil-A boasts that the new restaurant “will offer unimpeded views of the Freedom Tower” from the rooftop dining area
“The Fulton Street metro station is right next door to the restaurant, and no one will ever build on top of it,” explained Chick-fil-A’s design manager, Nathaniel Cates. “That means our guests will always have the same views of Freedom Tower.
Pretty cool right? I think it will be interesting to see a Chick-fil-A that is only 15 feet wide, I think it will fit perfectly into the hustle and bustle of New York City. Cates promised that they will be making “the dining experience as comfortable as possible” for customers.
Cates added, “We pushed ourselves to break into new ways of thinking and try innovative solutions we’ve never implemented before.”
Included among those innovations are large floor-to-ceiling windows on both the front and back of the restaurant, as well as a skylight, to bring in more natural light. There will also be a “monumental” staircase connecting the first four levels — two of which will be dedicated to food prep, the rest to seating — intended to draw guests to the dining areas on the upper floors.
