New York has a nasty case of Fuku Fever and the only prescription is crispy fried chicken sandwiches.

Look outside the window and you will see that Fukusanity has spread to every corner of this great city. You might say that New York is experiencing something akin to the Summer of Love — but with fried chicken sandwiches in the former Momofuku Ko space instead of drugs, free sex, and political protests. And just when you thought the fried poultry phenomenon couldn't get any bigger, David Chang switches up the operations of that sandwich shop in a way that will possibly alter the course of restaurant history forever.

Starting this week, Fuku will be open on Friday and Saturday nights from 6 p.m. till 11 p.m. This will be the first time that you will be able to eat those crispy chicken sandwiches at night. The Fuku team will open at 11 a.m., business as usual, close to prepare for evening service at 4 p.m., and resume total FukuSanity at 6 p.m. That's 10 extra hours of FukuSanity per week.

The new dinner service starts this Friday, July 10. Stay tuned for more updates from the oblong, deep-fried Fuku mothership as they become available.
