Chipotle Opening Set For October

The restaurant will offer outdoor seating and serve beer and wine.

Chipotle could be opening at the Malibu Village in the next few months.

The Denver-based chain was originally set to open in June on Cross Creek Road between Pacific Coast Highway and Civic Center Way, according to the company's website.

The opening is now expected on Oct. 17, but the date could change.

The Malibu Planning Commission in April, which include an outdoor patio.

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

At that meeting, Julie Eamer of A Safer PCH was the lone voice of opposition to the alcohol permit.

Malibu Patch will have more on this story soon.

J. Flo, Thank you. However, I ask rhetorically, how can anyone have faith in a Planning Commission whose members (except John) continually ignores the General Plan that was create shortly after the residents of Malibu voted to create the City of Malibu?

Mikke and David were just appointed - lets give them a fair shake. So far, so good! I don't know David well but I do think Mikke has solid priorities that will protect this rare city. Let's see . . .

I agree. All towns seem to be turning into clones of each other. Same restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, etc. Tourists stop me to ask for directions to a Starbucks, not a coffee shop. The only thing Mexican about Chipotle will be the dishwashers, imported from some place a long commute away.

There is room in Malibu for Nobu, and Chipotle, and Howdy's, and the hamburger shack at Las Flores. Businesses have a right to rent. The Planning Czars have no right to interfere in a lease. What I object to is a city government that itself made a decision to go utlrachic, instead of beachy, in municipally-owned property. I object to a city council (not the current one) that approved a massive shopping mall/office structure at La Paz, with a traffic mitigation plan that involves bulldozing into the lagoon. Those are the legacies that have so damaged Malibu.
