It's abundantly clear that Americans like to eat out. The nation's restaurants are expected to rack up sales of $511 billion this year, compared with $185 billion two decades ago. But are they willing to put their money where their mouths are by investing in restaurant stocks? It seems so, based on the market's sizzling endorsement yesterday of Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Oak Brook, Ill.-based McDonald's Corp. Chipotle went to market with its initial public offering Wednesday, pricing the shares at $22, significantly above earlier estimates.

Authorities say a disgruntled former Chipotle employee conspired with her boyfriend to hold up four area locations at gunpoint, according to a federal indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.   Marvel Alegria, 23, and boyfriend Lamont Bonds, 27, were first charged in November 2012 with robbing two Montgomery County Chipotles.  In a news release at the time, county police said Alegria had been fired from the Mt. Airy Chipotle and had made threats to retaliate.  The federal indictment, unsealed Friday, alleges that Alegria provided information to Bonds to "obtain the maximum amount of cash proceeds.

Once unthinkable, hip modernity is arriving at a venerable downtown lunch spot: a plasma TV, a chartreuse paint scheme, chipotle mayo and self-service. The Woman's Industrial Exchange's former tearoom, for more than a century a genteel and leisurely midday rendezvous for a petite platter of chicken salad, tomato aspic, deviled egg and lemon tart, reopens Oct. 18 as the Chef's Express. The color scheme is "city chartreuse" and "fresh pear," with an exposed stainless-steel kitchen. The new restaurant's operators promise a plasma TV tuned to food channels.

First, it was the silverware. For more than six years, Moe's Southwest Grill has been selling its burritos at Annapolis' historic City Dock, the waterfront store among the few "fast-casual" restaurant chains to successfully set up shop despite the historic district's ban on fast food. But when Chipotle wanted to open a store a block away, Moe's owners hired an attorney to fight the application, contending the competing burrito joint was unequivocally a fast-food joint. Moe's first piece of evidence: Chipotle's environmentally friendly, compostable utensils.

Chipotle Mexican Grill has a limited menu. It sells burritos (tortillas stuffed with meat, beans, salsa, cheese and sour cream), fajita burritos (same thing but with peppers and onions instead of beans), burrito salads (same thing, but without the tortilla), and tacos (smaller flour or corn tortillas, stuffed with meat, salsa, sour cream and lettuce). For sides, there are chips, salsa and guacamole. I've got nothing against a restaurant that focuses on a few items, as long as every item is really, really good.

"It's fun, I love doing it. We find what's trending and give it our own twist," said bartender Matthew Ballinger.

Like an alien invasion in paperback sci-fi, a Chipotle Mexican Grill could be dropping down in your neighborhood. Instead of running away from this fast-growing chain, people are flocking to it. There are 350 locations in the United States, with new ones opening each month. Landing recently in the Columbia Crossing shopping center, the fast, fresh Mexican burrito stop offers customers a mix-and-match selection of spicy fillings to suit individual tastes. Even if you walk in at 7:30 p.m. on a Tuesday evening and the line stops at the door, in 10 minutes the serving crew will be warming up your tortilla for an oversized, overstuffed burrito or fajita that you'll be hard-pressed to finish in one sitting.

When one of my husband's colleagues announced she was retiring after many years of service, we knew there would be many rounds of big parties in her honor. When we asked what we might do as a farewell gesture, she immediately said she would love a small dinner for eight. She even gave me the idea for the menu. Aware that I am always creating and testing recipes, she thoughtfully urged me to try my newest inventions for her soiree. After several days of debating what to serve, I made my selections.
