Geisha House was busy when they first opened their doors but once they were sold, to a Korean family, the restaurant went downhill fast.
The Chipotle Mexican Grill that is replacing them should do well. The restaurant is located at the CityPlace, across from the MainPlace Mall, off of Memory Lane and Main St., at 2773 N. Main St. The CityPlace features other eateries, including the Corner Bakery, the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Z Pizza, Habit Burger and Pinkberry Yogurt.
According to Chipotle’s Facebook page, “Steve Ells, founder, chairman and co-CEO, started Chipotle with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls (a burrito without the tortilla) and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in a distinctive atmosphere. Through our vision of Food with Integrity, Chipotle is seeking better food not only from using fresh ingredients, but ingredients that are sustainably grown and naturally raised with respect for the animals, the land, and the farmers who produce the food. Chipotle opened its first restaurant in 1993 and currently operates more than 1000 restaurants. For more information, visit chipotle.com.”
