ABOUT THE BOILING CRAB:

The Boiling Crab restaurants are casual, full dining venues modeled after traditional seafood boils from the coastal regions of Louisiana and Southern Texas, where eating shellfish is a social event.

The Boiling Crab restaurants capture the spirit of the convivial seafood boil by featuring a variety of market fresh seafood entrees prepared Cajun-style and served with different sauces, from mild to highly spicy.

The Boiling Crab restaurants feature an informal dining atmosphere with nautical theme décor. The menu at The Boiling Crab restaurants typically includes one or more varieties of crab, crawfish, lobster, shrimp and raw oysters. Fresh seafood entrees are prepared in giant pots of seasoned broth, made to order and served in bags (to preserve flavor) on paper covered tables. Traditional utensils are optional, as many consider the art of the seafood boil to include peeling and eating seafood with one’s hands. The menu also includes fried options such as fried catfish or shrimp with Cajun fries, gumbo and side dishes. The Boiling Crab restaurants serve fountain beverages and possess a license to serve beer and wine.

ABOUT CHIPOTLE:

Steve Ells, founder, chairman and co-CEO, started Chipotle with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls (a burrito without the tortilla) and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in a distinctive atmosphere. Through the vision of Food With Integrity, Chipotle is seeking better food from using ingredients that are not only fresh, but that—where possible—are sustainably grown and raised responsibly with respect for the animals, the land, and the farmers who produce the food. In order to achieve this vision, Chipotle focuses on building a special people culture that is centered on creating teams of top performers empowered to achieve high standards.

Chipotle opened with a single restaurant in 1993 and operates more than 1,900 restaurants, including 22 Chipotle restaurants outside the US, 11 ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen restaurants, and is an investor in an entity that owns and operates three Pizzeria Locale restaurants.
