Chipotle to open fifth London site

US-based Mexican restauant chain Chipotle is to open its fifth London restaurant and has plans for two more.

The new site, in Upper Street, Islington, is set to open during the second quarter of 2012.

The other two sites are set to open at 92-93 St Martins Lane and at 185 Wardour Street in the second half of 2012. The company operates more than 1,200 restaurants in the United States.

Chipotle opened its first UK site at 114-116 Charing Cross Road in 2010, followed by a second site at 101-103 Baker Street last year.

Rex Jones, executive director, international development for Chipotle Mexican Grill, said: "We are excited to be opening our first restaurant outside of central London, in Islington, planned for the second quarter of 2012. The food culture in the UK is based on local, sustainable and artisanal foods, which are all core values of Chipotle."
