Chipotle Mexican Grill Slated to Open Next Month on Route 1

ChipotleA Chipotle Mexican Grill is scheduled to open in the The Square at West Windsor on Route 1 north next month.

A company representative said the store is expected to open around Feb. 5, but the opening date could be earlier or later depending on various factors.

Chipotle Mexican Grill is a national chain of about 1,200 casual, fast-food restaurants that is known for its use of organic ingredients and a sustainable food philosophy. It will open alongside a Pei Wei Asian Diner, an offshoot of the P.F. Chang China Bistro franchise that offers Asian food in a casual environment at a lower price point than P.F. Chang. Both restaurants will offer take out. The Pei Wei Asian Diner will open later in the year.

The restaurants will occupy space next to Ethan Allen Furniture, which downsized last year. The stores are located in the same section of The Square as Trader Joe’s.
