Chipotle coming to WP

Word on the street is that Chiptole Grill is coming to White Plains, same block on Main St. as Anthony's Coal Oven Pizza. Those burrito bowls are like crack to me, now I won't have to schlep to Rye to get it!

      1. Apparently in the works for a while. From Jan 7

        At 250 Main St., Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. will open a 2,200-square-foot restaurant in the former A&P building, said developer Anthony J. Rotonde. The construction is part of the $7 million first phase of Rotonde’s Metropolitan Plaza redevelopment project that was recently approved by the White Plains Common Council (see related story on page 1). Based in Denver, Colo., the Chipotle company has 1,023 restaurants nationwide and expected high single-digit sales growth in 2010.

        1. Thanks for the tip! Love this place to death and won't give me a heart attack like Five Guys.

            yeah cuz nothing screams healthy like a burrito as big as your head filled with pork, sour cream & cheese! enjoy!

            1. re: cubanat

              I never said it was healthy. Just not as artery clogging as burgers and fries.

              1. re: broosewee

                Not as artery clogging?? The calories and fat content of a burrito is about the same as a burger and fries from 5 Guys.

                1. re: pabboy

                  Not to mention the salt content.

                  1. re: Shawn

                    Old topic but I just came across it and I was curious about the comparison.
                    From 5 Guy's site,
                    a cheeseburger and regular fries adds up to 1,793 calories, 96 grams of fat, and 2,012mg of sodium. A bacon cheeseburger brings that up to 1,873 calories, 103 grams of fat, and 2,272mg sodium. Interestingly, the serving size difference between the cheeseburger and bacon cheeseburger is a mere 14 grams, or less than half an ounce.

                    The Chipotle comparison,
                    requires a bit more work, as you have to build the burrito. I selected a soft flour tortilla, steak (closest analog to the burger meat), black beans, brown rice, tomatillo-green chili salsa, cheese (because of the cheeseburger), and guacamole. That totals 1,130 calories, 51 grams fat, and 2,205mg sodium.
                    If you go for the burrito bowl (i.e., sans tortilla) calories drop to 830, fat to 41, and sodium to 1515. Drop the guac (since there's no analog on the 5G burger) and we're down to 635 calories, 23g fat, and 1435mg sodium.

                    Not health food, but the Chipotle items are considerably better than 5 Guys.

                    1. re: Scott_R

                      Thanks for clearing that up Scott. For the past 3 years I've been wondering how people can argue 5 Guys is an equal alternative to Chipotle.
                      Neither are 'healthy' but I'd be damned if I didn't walk out of 5 Guys with about 30 seconds shaved off my life expectancy.
                      And yes, that happens more frequently than I'd like to admit. :O

          2. So three years after the original post, I just saw today that the White Plains Chipotle has its sign lit up, and it looks like it won't be too long before they are able to open.
