Chipotle is aiming to open in Clarendon later this month

The new Chipotle in Clarendon is planning on opening in about two weeks.

The Mexican fast casual chain is aiming to open its new location at 3017 Clarendon Blvd on Thursday, April 21, a Chipotle spokesperson confirmed to ARLnow. It will be open from 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. This is Chipotle’s sixth Arlington location, joining existing outposts in Ballston, Crystal City, Columbia Pike, Pentagon City, and at the Lee Heights Shops.

The eatery will be on the ground floor of the 3000 Wilson Blvd office building, next to Four Sisters Grill. It’s filling the space that once was Pete’s New Haven Apizza, which closed in the summer of 2019.

There will be indoor dining space as well as a walk-up window where customers who ordered online can pick up their food without going inside. The location will also serve beer.

The first 50 people there on opening day will receive free “Chipotle Goods.” That’s merchandise that’s, as the spokesperson put it, “responsibly sourced… focused on size inclusivity, gender neutral pieces and unisex sizing on most products.”

ARLnow first reported on Chipotle moving into Clarendon in early February. The company initially denied its was coming to Clarendon, before reversing course.

The opening caps a seven year wait for burrito fans in Clarendon. Back in 2014, a Chipotle “coming soon” sign showed up on 3001 Washington Blvd. But it turned out to be a fake, apparently put up by a local prankster.
