Opened by Venezuelan native Luis “Lucho” Quintero in 2004, El Cocotero offers guests fresh, authentic Venezuelan cuisine. Start your meal with a tropical juice like parchita or guanabana, and then enjoy some sweet plantains with orange glazed baked chicken and asado negro. Don’t forget to sample the gluten-free, preservative-free arepa, which is “healthy for the body, yummy for the soul.” And when you feel like dining at home, El Cocotero offers free delivery as well as free juice with orders of $50 or more.
