You can see that the inside of the new Chipotle Restaurant located in the BJ's Mall on Broadway is packed on opening day. I spoke to the manager who said business was better than expected, and he joked that he could be running out of a few items if this demand continues. No photos were allowed inside the store, but i can tell you that there was plenty of help on hand to serve the customers just what they wanted.
If you look closely on the side of the police car, it is not from the 50th Pct. around the corner from the new Chipotle Restaurant on Broadway at West 237th Street, but from the 52nd Pct. located on Webster Avenue. There is a Chipotle Restaurant in the 52nd Pct. on Fordham Road that opened up last week, and I was told by an unnamed officer that Chipotle is even busier than this new one. Tomorrow at 11 AM the new Buffalo Wild Wings on the second floor of this mall will be opening.
Above - As for the new BJ's no opening date has been announced, but that there is to be a job fair soon between the BOEDC and BJ's.
Below - the CLOSED KEEP OUT sign on the door tells it all, as delays have pushed back the BJ's opening close to one year.
