The other day, an alert “06880” reader was talking to Qdoba corporate headquarters. (It’s a long story.)
The bad news is: that’s Playhouse Square. Traffic already approaches Chris Christie/George Washington Bridge levels. If it goes in where Purple Feet was, we’ll be at Defcon 1.
The good news: There is also a vacant storefront (though it has a “Space Available” sign in front) at the former Pierre Deux. That’s the stand-alone store, at the entrance to the shopping center. So if Qdoba goes there, diners won’t have to actually enter Playhouse Square. They’ll just add to the mess by the traffic light.
Meanwhile, word on the Compo Acres Shopping Center
street sidewalk is that the new tenant in the old Oaxaca restaurant space will be: Chipotle.
Further “06880” reports on Qdoba and Chipotle will be forthcoming mañana.
Or whenever we hear something definite.
