    I loved this little restaurant both for its ambiance and its comida! The place is tiny, located on a quiet street corner in the south end. The walls of first floor, brownstone dining room are decorated with old photos, artisan masks, and what I can only assume are Venezuelan hand crafts. There is additional seating outside on the brick sidewalk in the summer. The menu offers a fusion of Andean and Caribbean tastes and is supposedly based on old family recipes. I recommend ordering small plates and trying a little bit of everything. Cheese lovers will love the arepas, and the bacon wrapped dates are to die for. I was a fan of the light, but filling portion sizes; the food was delicious without being too greasy or heavy. It also doesn't hurt that the prices are so affordable!

    Very good South America fare, featuring arepas for lunch and an excellent weekend brunch.
