Qdoba To Add 3rd Midtown Location, Sakae & Five Guys Popping Up Elsewhere
According to their website, a 3rd Midtown Qdoba (on 46th btw. Madison & 5th), is coming soon. I tried the newest one on 53rd St. & 3rd Ave., and I have to say I don’t find it to be that much different then Chipotle (or, as the kids say- “meh”.) The selection at Qdoba is a little larger, so the chances of finding that one thing you can tolerate is greater- but I ain’t willing to put in that kind of time. So, if you’re sick of Chipotle, and looking for something new, you’ll probably enjoy Qdoba. If you hate Chipotle, and are hoping for that burrito savior, I’m guessing this probably won’t be it.

While Chipotle expands its Midtown holdings, other Midtown Lunch favorites are branching out. Five Guys & Sakae news, after the jump…
The Citysearch blog is reporting that Midtown Lunch favorite Five Guys Burgers & Fries will open its second Manhattan outpost this weekend in the West Village. Eater has got the photos. This is great news for those of us who get weekend cravings for Five Guys, but wouldn’t be caught dead in Midtown on a Saturday.
And they’re not the only ones setting up shop in the W. Village. With the conveyor belt on 43rd btw. Lex+3rd barely operational for 3 weeks, Sakae Sushi has it posted on their website that the 2nd NYC Location will be opening in the West Village, at 135 West 3rd Street.
