Kew Gardens Chicken–formerly The Chicken House–Temporarily Shut Down By Health Dept.

June 18, 2018 By Christian Murray

Kew Gardens Chicken, formerly known as The Chicken House, has been temporarily closed by the Health Department.

The eatery—known for selling competitively-priced chicken, buffalo wings and pork chops—was shut down June 15 for keeping its food at incorrect temperatures and not keeping its wiping clothes clean.

This is the second time in three months that the 80-45 Kew Gardens Rd. establishment has been closed.

On March 16, it was closed for having live roaches on the premises.

The restaurant racked up 46 points in last week’s inspection. It was written up for the following violations.

Sanitary Violations
1) Cold food item held above 41º F (smoked fish and reduced oxygen packaged foods above 38 ºF) except during necessary preparation.
2) Insufficient or no refrigerated or hot holding equipment to keep potentially hazardous foods at required temperatures.
3) Wiping cloths soiled or not stored in sanitizing solution.
4) Non-food contact surface improperly constructed. Unacceptable material used. Non-food contact surface or equipment improperly maintained and/or not properly sealed, raised, spaced or movable to allow accessibility for cleaning on all sides, above and underneath the unit.

They should also be checking the chicken place on Queens Boulevard around the corner from KG Chicken. It’s way more filthy.
