CHI•RIN•GO ’chï-ri?-(,)go\ n
1: a small enterprise usually a bar, selling mainly drinks and tapas, sometimes meals in a more or less provisional building, often on a beach or loose surface where a more permanent structure may be unviable.
Inspired by a trip to southern Spain in 2014, recovering entrepreneur Andy McKoski teamed up with a few industry friends in hopes of bringing his “life-changing” experience to his backyard–the beautiful beaches of Scenic Highway 30-A. The Chiringo team strives to recreate the amazingly simple days of Spanish beaches where fresh flavors, vibrant colors and great times dominate the landscape.
While a trip to Spain may have provided the stimulus for Chiringo’s décor, Puerto Rican-born Chef Cesar Velazquez draws his menu inspiration from beaches around the world. Fresh Gulf Coast seafood, grass-fed organic beef, and locally sourced fruits and vegetables are the exceptional staples behind Chiringo’s flavorful and fresh food and drinks.
Chiringo is located on the corner of DeFuniak Street and Hotz Avenue in the heart of beautiful Grayton Beach, Florida, across from The Red Bar.
