Midtown is Getting a Second Baja Fresh!


And the Baja Fresh invasion of New York City continues… thanks to Midtown Lunchers “Michelle” & “Mike” for sending along this great news: coming soon signs just went up for a second Baja Fresh on Broadway btw. 40+41st. in the old Zest space. As for the first Baja Fresh location (in the old Zen Burger space on Lex btw. 45+46th), the official signage went up at the end of last week and they had an open house for prospective employees yesterday… so we are clearly just a few weeks away. UPDATE: Eater is reporting that the Lexington location will open the day after Memorial Day, and the Broadway location will open sometime this fall.

What To Expect From Midtown’s New Baja Fresh
My Prayers Have Been Answered: Midtown Baja Fresh Confirmation


  • I will not be eating there, unless it’s sub $8. 2 pretty good actual Mexican places near 40th and bdwy and that weirdass place next to Subway on 41st sells Mexican food also.

  • Zach – have you tried the “build your own burritos/wraps” at the Bistro Cafe coincidentally located across from the Lexington Baja Location?

    For people who are worried about “flacid burritos, this place lets you pile on as many items as you want into a grilled wrap for only $7.

    They are definently fully stuffed (even if you don’t ask for rice and beans) with 4-5 meat choices (steak, grilled chicken, bbq chicken, shredded stew chicken, etc.) and a bevy of vegetable toppings (lettuce, peppers, onions pico de gallo, salsa, corn, mushrooms, guac, mango salsa, sour cream, tomatoes, etc.) and sauces (green sauce, chipotle sauce, hot sauce)

    Though I am a friend of Baja (obviously), this place and entered my weekly rotation and could give the Fresh a run for its money.

  • I wish delis that make deli burritos would use actual tortilla/buritto wrapping and not that generic sandwich wrap cafeteria junk.
