El Jibarito, opened in the summer of 2020 at 390 Rhode Island Avenue before closing 3 years later due to personal reasons.

Casa Ive Dominican Cuisine now occupies that spot.

El Jibarito will now be occupying 840 Bedford Street, the former Island Buffet.

The eatery will feature an array of Puerto Rican dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as it did previously, along with typical American fare. Desserts and sweets will also be found in both American and Puerto Rican style. A kids menu will also be featured.

According to owner Amanda Jimenez Sostre, the new location is going to have take-out and more seating space in the restaurant as well as outside seating. The menu will also have more variety.
