Be honest with me. Who knows how to pronounce Chipotle? And who knows what a chipotle is or means?
Okay, well allow me to help. The correct pronunciation is chee-pawt-le and just fyi, it’s a jalapeno pepper that has been dried and smoked for use in cooking. Hopefully that will ease minds and rest a lot of wrong tongues.
You know I’m all about giving you the latest on fashion, food and fun. Although Chipotle’s been the new Mexican fiesta in our windy city for a few years, I’ve become a huge fan of the gourmet burritos, tacos and salads. Every time I go in the experience feels like the first. But this time was extra special. From the burbs to the city I’ve never been prejudiced when it came to locations until today. From now on, I will patronize only on the Avenue. The Chipotle on Michigan and Wacker is not only convenient to public transportation, work offices and hotels, it stands out for their class A service. We always look for great service with fine dining and I’m here to make an addition to that list.
Last Friday, I was walking on the Michigan Ave. and my taste buds were in a very indecisive mood. I was accompanied by a young girl (Kiara) for whom it would be her first experience. Long story short, Kiara did not care for what she ordered (too spicy for an 11 year old). Allow me to pause and express to those of you who know very little about kids and how challenging it can be for them to taste something new. You have to hit it right on the first try or else, so needless to say I was in the hole. Trying to dig my way out, the decision was made to purchase another delight. Manager “Superman” Tim Holm allowed Kiara to go behind the scenes and be a chef for five minutes to create her burrito.
As I was no longer in the hole and Chipotle is on top of the world; “superman” once again has saved the day. He not only opened her eyes to a possible career in the futurem but she loved the burrito and can’t wait to go back. If you haven’t done so I highly encourage you to try Chipotle at 316 N. Michigan Avenue
