Currently, there are about 40 Chipotle locations scattered throughout New York City, concentrated in Manhattan, with one in Brooklyn and none in any other borough. That will change in the coming months when the chain opens shop in Queens, according to Edge of the City. Chipotle will open at 70-30 Austin Street in the space vacated by cupcake haven Martha’s Country Bakery, which moved to larger digs earlier this fall. The new restaurant is among the seven Chipotles expected to open in the boroughs outside Manhattan in the next few years, including others in Brooklyn and its first (if all goes well) on Staten Island.
