Review: Chipotle

| March 3, 2006 | 0 Comments

I had an amazing burrito here – it was the steak fajita burrito with cheese and mild salsa. The tortilla was soft and light. The peppers and onions were cooked just right – crisp and flavorful. And the salsa had a hint of bite, but didn’t toss my shoes across the room. And it was HUGE. I felt so full when I was done, which doesn’t happen all the time.

My foodmates also enjoyed the steak burrito with guacamole and cheese and the chicken tacos with sour cream.

It was so great to see them make it fresh in front of me, and build it totally to order. And even better, the people who work there were friendly and smiled. Now that’s a rarity these days, if I do say so myself. And it’s a chain, so this isn’t limited to Manhattan.

The Caveat: reading the overhead menu is a little confusing. You read the boards from right to left to figure out what to order. I just winged it, and only realized later what each of the boards meant.

The stools, which are the only seating in the place, also weren’t particularly comfortable. It took a moment or two to get into a position where I wouldn’t fall off.
