Chipotle's Southeast Asian chain of restaurants, ShopHouse, is finally coming to the Chicago area this fall.

The fast-casual restaurant how has official opening dates for its Loop and Schaumburg locations: Nov. 13 and Dec. 8. The Schaumburg restaurant, at 1022 N. Meacham Rd., is scheduled to open on Friday, Nov. 13. All opening day guests will receive free bowls from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., so expect long lines. The Loop location, at 24 E. Jackson St., is set to open on Tuesday, Dec. 8.

The concept is similar to Chipotle with guests being able to customize their meal at an open kitchen. The entire menu is gluten-, wheat- and dairy-free and made with non-GMO ingredients.

ShopHouse already operates 11 restaurants in the Washington, DC and Los Angeles areas.
