If you’re anything like us, you know Chipotle’s menu by heart. But what if we told you that there’s a Chipotle with a completely different menu, and that menu includes brand new items never seen anywhere else? Turns out, this magical Chipotle exists in New York City. It’s called the Next Kitchen, and it’s where the restaurant tests out its new menu items (like, say, the infamous queso).
Here’s how the Next Kitchen works: while a few standard items (think burritos, burrito bowls and salads) are usually on the menu, customers also have the chance to try out experimental “Next” items that Chipotle is testing.
The restaurant will then tweak the experimental menu items’ recipes based on feedback before giving them the green light to launch nationally. So, what’s on the menu at the Chipotle Next Kitchen?
