Chipotle Opening Expected in Two Weeks

The Denver-based chain will open Oct. 24 on Cross Creek Road in Malibu.

Chipotle will be opening at the Malibu Village later this month.

The opening is set for Oct. 24 on Cross Creek Road between Pacific Coast Highway and Civic Center Way, according to Jessica Smith, a spokeswoman for the Denver-based chain, which initially expected to open in June.

The Malibu Planning Commission approved plans for Chipotle in April, which includes an outdoor patio.

The eatery will be allowed to serve beer and wine inside the business, but not on the patio.

Please dont tell me how the shoe store was granted a pass and koss has an array of small business. Bottom line is that it is to expensive to rent here and no solution in sight.

"Malibu small businesses will survive in large part by being special, unique and something that can't be found everywhere." Tell that to: Tops Gallery- Indiana Joans - Sea Lily Florist - Trancas Nursery - Levon Shoe Repair - Point Pizza - Zuma Hardware - Malibu Beach Club - Ballet By The Sea - Color My Mine - Anouk - Rock Star Jewelry - Leather Waves - McClane Art Gallery and on and on and on and on . . . and this is only going to get worse. Count on it. We've walked the length of Malibu businesses and personally spoken to these individual owners - the very bottom line comes down to simple math. Exorbitant rents and evictions are the #1 problem. What these independent businesses can afford and if the landlords support them, 1 + 1 does = 2. The long-term solution, as other cities have found, lies at both the resident AND the City level. The sleeping giant of concerned citizens is waking up - we do hope that our city and the landlords are listening. This giant is NOT going to go back to sleep.

Normally, I'd share your sentiment. I'm a big proponent of supporting mom and pop businesses, but howdy's has aweful food, not to mention being over priced. I look forward to eating a vegetarian salad at chipotle while reminiscing over the Pizza Hut days.

How do I flag this for racism?
