Scrumptious, Traditional Venezuelan Food This Labor Day Weekend.
Today's NYC Food Bite comes to you courtesy of a South American (Venezuelan to be precise) restaurant called "Caracas Arepa Bar." The restaurant, which opened in 2003, is dedicated to providing a fine blend of the intimate traditional flavors that homemade Venezuelan food offers with the eclectic vibe of the city. Nestled in a harmonious corner of the East Village, just south of St. Marks Place, the restaurant, which shares another location in Brooklyn, serves a daily array of authentic Venezuelan bites that is enough to make your mouth water and come back begging for more. From smoldering, hearty and meaty Arepas to crunchy sweet and salty plantains to can't-miss lunch specials, any food-lover is sure to find their niche at this South American spot. The layout of the restaurant also aids to its "homey" notion, being set out in a small and comfortable table-by-table space and decorated throughout with traditional Venezuelan artifacts and wall decor, which adds to its South American "vibe".
