Earlier this year (March 2010 to be exact), Mexican fast food chain and fan favorite Chipotle (www.chipotle.com) opened up on the corner of 14th and Irving (117 East 14th Street).
Despite mixed feelings about national chains moving into the area (see my TGIF post here - http://unionsquarenyc.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/tgi-fridays-opening-soon-in-union-square/), I think that Chipotle is a great new addition. Not only is the food surprisingly good, but the storefront conforms to local neighborhood norms including signage that isn’t overpowering.
If you’ve never heard of Chipotle, it’s definitely worth trying. I’m a fan of the burritos (especially their guacamole!), but I have tried and liked most of their menu as well. Take a look at some other reviews (http://www.yelp.com/biz/chipotle-mexican-grill-new-york-7)
Let me know if you have suggestions for other “New Business/Restaurant of the week”!!
