Chipotle is a great place isn't it? I love their burriotos!
Now for once, that was NOT sarcastic. :)
But what's up with their take-out bags looking like gift bags? It seems like a lot of restaurants are doing that now, and I don't care for it much. Now you think I'm crazy, but I think there's something to be said for keeping some things as they are for old times' sake. There's a certain *feel* that comes with bags. I mean think about it, big brown paper bags without handles say groceries, big plastic bags say shopping at a department store, smaller plastic bags say take-out food, and smaller, stiffer "bags" with handles say a gift bag. When I get take-out, I want it to *feel* like I'm taking out food rather than feeling like I'm carrying a gift for someone.
I mean would it be the same to pour cereal out of a bag instead of out of a box, or to have Chinese take-out be in bowls instead of boxes?
