East Orange, New Jersey: A new restaurant with a name similar to a nationwide fast casual franchise has opened in Essex County.
Chipot Lee, which appears to have no relation to Chipotle, opened its doors last month at 462 Central Avenue, between South Clinton Street and South Burnett Street, in East Orange. The restaurant advertises itself as a 'Mexican and Asian grill', and menu items range from General Tso's chicken, fried shrimp, and cilantro white rice to chicken burritos, tacos, and chips with guacamole. The business is open for lunch and dinner daily except for Sundays.
The space, located next to Scovil's Barber Shop, was previously occupied by a location of Crown Fried Chicken and Pizza.
