The new ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen concept is opening in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, and social media reports offer glimpses from a soft-opening preview this week.
It appears that the long-awaited second concept from Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. is just about ready for its close up, although company officials did not respond to requests for details.
