What is a “chop bar”?

NOT a steak house.

“A chop bar, in West African parlance, is a roadside bar/restaurant that also serves as a gathering place for the community” says Lev Delany, chef at Chop Bar.

Jesse and Lev (co-owners) noticed that the Jack London Square neighborhood was very much in need of such a place, where locals could get food or a drink and feel like part of a community.

Perhaps not as literally “roadside” as these West African examples, Chop Bar is quickly becoming a favorite for the neighborhood crowd:
