Not enough said.
Pret A Manger is also owned by McDonald's and yet they provide good quality mostly organic food.
McDonalds and Chipotle are 2 completely different animals.

Interesting! I didn't know that. I was responding to someone's comment that Chipotle was very high-quality food, when it really isn't. It's neither authentic nor particularly healthy. It tastes fine; I'd rather eat a Chipotle burrito than go to Del Taco, just as I'd sooner go to In & Out than McDonald's. None of those places are gourmet, though, and that's what I was addressing.

I think anyone that would scoff at Chipotle is stuffy. The line last night was wrapped around the building. It looked like a very hip crowd. I told jokes, and we all had a good time.

Not for the first date, but I like it. I like going to something a little more cozy, warm and romantic for the first date. Chipotle is very upbeat, sometimes loud and usually crowded where I'm from. You got booths and stuff, people who might make the date full of distractions.

You can't really say that. People have different tastes in what is a type of place to set a mood.

Never been to a Chipotle, but I'm not opposed to more casual restaurants for dates, especially if you're just getting to know each other.

Perhaps this was a thread started by a Chipotle employee in order for people to think of Chipotle all day and have a huge turn out for dinner.

Love it..but it would be the kind of spot for a casual date.. Now, at least for me, some place like Bahama Breeze would rank higher on the date place list.. Not formal..yet not "chipotle" casual either..Just a nice place with pretty good food..at least in my experiences..

Yes, I like them. And I'd be okay to the idea of eating there for a date.

My favorite choice for first dates, are BBQ joints, the more casual the better. I HATE first dates in upscale restaurants. I love BBQ. And, while I would love to eat in the upscale choice later on, it's important to me how comfortable "he" is in a sauce-dribble-down-the-chin atmosphere.
