D’CARBON IN PATERSON
Though away from the Little Lima area of Paterson, D’Carbon boasts Peruvian delicacies you’d find around Market Street. Its less-crowded location allows the restaurant to have more seats/tables than the typical North Jersey Peruvian place. It even has its own parking lot. There is a second location in Woodland Park.
Rustic look with wood tabletops and a well-stocked bar in back with a view of the entire restaurant. Multiple screens, usually showing soccer. Count on holiday and seasonal decorations.
Traditional Peruvian, featuring classics like polla a la brasa rotisserie chicken. Classics like chaufas (fried rice) and saltados (Peruvian stir-fry) available with chicken, beef, shrimp or a mixture. Also, grilled meats and a variety of seafood dishes, like jalea, fried seafood topped with red onion relish known as salsa criolla. Goes well with a pisco sour, Peru’s national cocktail, made from pisco, lime juice, simple syrup and egg white. Online ordering is available.
Outdoor seating available in warmer months, with patio tables, stone-wall décor and an outdoor bar.
