Up until now there’s been but one Moe’s Southwest Grill in Manhattan, but it’s in Penn Station, and it’s hard to feel appropriately Tex-Mexican anywhere in Penn Station. Today, however, it all changes, with the opening of a new Moe’s at 367 First Avenue, near 22nd Street, in the former home of … Moe’s Southwest Grill. The new owners send word that they’re planning two more locations, in Murray Hill and Kips Bay, and to celebrate today’s grand opening, burritos are going for four dollars. And before you go knocking taco salads and talking trash about pepper jack, just remember that while Moe’s may not dazzle you with tableside guacamole, they will give you a free two-ounce portion if you upgrade your giant burrito to a full meal.
