Ellie Kim reflects on returning to New York City to open restaurant near Grand Central.
“If I could describe New York City in one word, it would be ‘home.’”
Ellie Kim spoke those words with an unmistakable, resounding passion. Having spent 11 years in Washington, D.C., Kim couldn’t be happier to finally return to the city and open the newest Chick-fil-A restaurant at 42nd Street and Madison Avenue, a stone’s throw from Grand Central Station.
Kim is no stranger to this town. After being raised in Seoul and moving to Parsippany, N.J., she went on to study at New York University, and eventually own a dry-cleaning business in the Broadway Theatre District.
