Chipotle will open its New Haven branch next Tuesday, Jan. 29, a representative for Chipotle has confirmed to the News.

The popular Mexican grill, which is poised to fill many late-night study breaks with burritos and guacamole, will be located on 900 Chapel St. and will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. But the excitement has already started: At an employee information session this morning, jars of hot sauce and bagged T-shirts were spotted strewn across the franchise’s floor.

The manager would not give her name and declined to comment, except to say that she is excited for the opening.

So are we, Chipotle. So are we.
