Caracas, located in the East Village, is an authentic Venezuelan eatery specializing in the arepa, a Venezuelan muffin made of corn flour and stuffed with a variety of fillings. The restaurant’s Manhattan location has a small dining area with exposed brick walls and tables pushed close together. Menu items include la pelúa, arepas stuffed with shredded beef and cheese, and reina pepiada, arepas filled with chicken and avocado. Side items, including fried plantains, make fitting accompaniments. The restaurant is also vegetarian-friendly, and tofu can be substituted for most meat fillings.
