New Eating Spots Include Chipotle Mexican Grill On Cherokee Boulevard, Burlaep on E. 11th

Thursday, February 4, 2021 - by Gail Perry

A new restaurant, Chipotle Mexican Grill, 20 Cherokee Blvd. #112, was granted a beer license by the City Beer Board.

 

Chipotle Mexican Grill is already open but has not been serving beer before being approved for the license Thursday morning.

Burlaep, 801 E. 11th St., is two businesses that share one building.

An apparel screen printing business that makes eco-conscious items as well as doing custom printing, occupies the back. A retail store and coffee shop which will also have a few beers on tap, occupies the large space in the front of the building.

 

Hours of operation for the coffee shop and store are Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

 

Owner Cleat Morris told the beer board that the unusual name for his business came from an apparel brand that was started in college in order to fund community projects in Honduras. During that time, rice and beans were taken to remote villages in burlap bags, and the company wanted to continue being internationally focused.

 

The spelling was changed to Burlaep because Burlap.com was already taken.
