QUEENS — Forest Hills is going south of the border.
The popular burrito chain Chipotle will open its first Queens location at 70-30 Austin St. early next year, although the exact date has not been decided yet, Chipotle spokesman Chris Arnold said.
The restaurant will be open Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., according to the company's website.
Chipotle is opening at the former location of Martha's Country Bakery, which moved in June to a bigger space next door.
Across the road, at 70-35 Austin St., Vanilla Sky, a new self-serve frozen yogurt and café lounge, is also slated to open soon. Construction workers at the store, where European Café used to be located, said they did not know exactly when the lounge would open.
Wellness Spa And Nails, located at 70-10 Austin St., is moving to a new location across the street. The spa, which will be at 70-21A Austin St., is changing its name to Organic Spa & Nails, and will be offering organic products made of mango and green tea.
Meanwhile, Yogo Monster, at 70-19 Austin St., has closed for the winter “to freshen up” its look. A poster on the door encourages customers to return in March.
