An established barbeque and Rodizio joint that has gotten raves for almost a decade has expanded to the Peninsula City with their second location.
Last month, local dignitaries held a ribbon-cutting heralding the arrival of Choripan, an authentic Argentinian Grill. The restaurant opened their first location in Hackensack back in 2012, winning over locals and drawing some stellar Yelp reviews along the way.
A devastating fire in 2015 forced the restaurant to briefly close, but they quickly found a new home inside space on Sussex Street near the Bergen County Courthouse. Their Bayonne spot is situated at 589 Broadway on the corner of 27th Street.
For those uninitiated, Choripan specializes in cooking barbeque and Rodizio on charcoal and wood. The restaurant’s namesake consists of chorizo on bread served with a Chimichurri sauce and the menu includes both lunch and dinner-sized servings, including a few platters designed for two.
Highlights include a paella with lobster or a surf and turf with skirt steak and jumbo shrimp. Mains like rib eyes, short ribs, pork chops, grilled chicken, salmon, and tilapia are all accounted for along with some more unique options like liver and onions, beef intestines, blood sausage, or sweetbread.
Choripan is currently open for pick-up orders, outdoor dining, and indoor seating at 25% capacity per New Jersey’s COVID-19 restrictions. Delivery through Uber Eats, Door Dash, and Grubhub is available and the restaurant is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., closing early at 8 p.m. on Mondays. They can be followed on a Facebook page created specifically for their Bayonne outpost.
