US-based Mexican casual dining chain Chipotle has taken a lease on its fourth UK site, in London's West End. It will occupy the ground floor and basement of 92/93 St Martin's Lane.
Nick Weir, a director at Shelley Sandzer, who acted on behalf of the landlord, Gascoyne Holdings, said: "Chipotle is a massive brand in the US and is now beginning to expand in London. Their brand of fresh, sustainable ingredients prepared using classic Mexican cooking methods is set to become a big hit in the capital this year."
Chipotle opened its first restaurant in 1993 and currently operates more than 1,000 restaurants around the world. It began trading at London's Charing Cross in 2010, and earlier this month it emerged that it would open its third site in London's Soho.
