Chipotle Coming to Former Cafe Parisien Space

A Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant is coming to the former Cafe Parisien space at 4520 Lee Highway in the Lee Heights shopping center.

Building permits were issued for the restaurant about two weeks ago. A tipster tells us a contractor was out measuring the storefront’s awning today.

This will be Chipotle’s fourth Arlington location and the first here that isn’t within easy walking distance of a Metro. The company’s existing eateries are located in Ballston, Crystal City and Rosslyn. The Lee Highway location could put restaurant in more direct competition with Arlington’s popular, homegrown Mexican eatery, District Taco (5723 Lee Highway).

No word yet on when Chipotle hopes to open. Cafe Parisien, a long-time fixture of the shopping strip, closed late last summer.
