The restaurant will not accept GWorld, said Beth Hengeveld, a spokeswoman for Chipotle.

The chain’s new location, its 13th in the District, will include 33 seats for a total occupancy of 56. The restaurant signed a lease in December to fill the space formerly occupied by the UPS store and another Mexican eatery, The Burro.

Up until now, the closest Chipotle was at 19th and M streets, and that restaurant accepts GWorld. The burrito and taco eatery also tried to move to campus in 2005, looking to occupy the building that now houses Tonic Restaurant.
