    Re: nutrition...I saw in "Health" magazine they are #6 healthiest fast food, two spots above MCD.

    I like the way the MF gang (who own CMG) spin the positives viz. 7% SSS growth...sure that was for the year..but doesn't mention the company guided SSS to flat to low single digits for '13. Also that the UK/Europe expansion has not been successful yet and will require more marketing and effort, as will the existing restaurants. They will raise prices in 2H13, but this will merely offset the margin compression...at 38X ttm eps Chipotle is getting ahead of itself again imo. ONRA is only 30X for example.
