Fresh fast-food is coming to Westchester (again!), this time in the form of Mexican cuisine at Chipotle Mexican Grill in Yonkers. The franchise is famous for fast-fresh burritos, tacos, and salads. Everything is made with sustainably rasied meats, local produce, organic beans, and rBGH-free milk to make its cheeses and sour cream.
And doesn’t this look appetizing? It’s one of Chipotle’s famous burritos.
Steve Ells, the restaurant’s founder, says, “There aren’t a lot of moving parts to our menu, so we can focus on grilling the perfect chicken, steaming the perfect rice, slow-cooking the best beans, and finding the freshest avocados to mash into guacamole. The flavor of our food is complex, but we use simple ingredients.”
While we have yet to see the new Chipotle in Yonkers, the restaurant promises “a hip, clean dining room, great music, and gourmet food you can eat with your hands all for about $7.”
That’s enough to get us there. How bout you?
Chipotle opens next Wednesday December 14, at 5510 Xavier Drive, in the Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers. Call 914-885-2900, or visit chipotle.com
