Today Chipotle opened in Paris, my current city of residence. I have been waiting for this since before we even left VA. I've badgered Corporate, and I'm sure Rusty and Joe at @ChipotleTweets would like me to take a long vacation. But it was all worth it.
Today I picked up Cousin Joey at CDG and headed into the city for our first taste of what I consider the best American "convenience" food (I refuse to say "fast") to be exported to France. I was not disappointed.
|This was taken from the car. I'm pretty sure I almost shed a tear. Can we safely say that white shirts and dark denim are in this season?|
|Hey look! A line! This is so unusual for Paris!|
|That guys' hair is almost as awesome as the fact that I'm about to get a burrito bowl in Paris. Oops. I meant an Assiette de Burrito.|
|The view from the upper floor eating area.|
|The typical Chipotle stark iron and concrete design. Done well.|
|A view of the eating area. A large space with not a huge amount of seating. But it seemed to work well. There were spaces for large groups, and it didn't seem cramped. The window seats look out onto the hustle and bustle of Boulevard Montmartre.|
|That's right! Chipotle is in France. Woo hoo!|
|The crew was just amazing today. They have a number of London "ringers" in to train the local crew and they were perfect. Excellent customer service in both French and English. If they can train the Paris team to their standards it will be fantastic.|
|Goodbye my new friend Chipotle Paris. I look forward to seeing you often. Perhaps tomorrow for lunch?|
