After three and a half years on South Broadway, Asian street food spot Cho77 is closing on September 27 and moving downtown. By winter, chef Lon Symensma’s more casual restaurant will live next door to its fine-dining counterpart, ChoLon, and also his forthcoming European cafe, LeRoux. Those two new spaces are slated to open at 16th and Blake Streets around the holidays.
But South Broadway diners will soon have a new restaurant to visit in Cho77’s space, at 42 South Broadway. BorraCho Tacos is set to open there on October 3; it’s Symensma’s latest endeavor, already located inside Avanti F&B. BorraCho will bring chef Kevin Chu’s current Avanti menu to South Broadway and expand on it.
Customers can expect tacos with shredded short rib, queso, sweet onions, and pickled chili; and tacos with shrimp satay, sriracha mayo, mint, radish, and avocado. There will be more than just tacos, too, from Mexican to more global dishes.
Symensma is a classically French-trained chef and an NYC Buddakan alum, known for his modern takes on Southeast Asian flavors. For all this movement, one of his restaurants has been left without a brick-and-mortar location. The fast-casual Kaya Kitchen, formerly at Avanti, is now relegated to “special collaboration projects,” according to a press release. Stay tuned to hear what that means.
