The sit-down restaurant is temporarily closed due to a fire. The take-out annex, at 91 East 7th, remains open.

The arepa, in case you didn't know, is not quite a snack, but then it's not quite a meal either. It's a Venezuelan corn muffin, crisp on the outside and steamy-soft in the middle, stuffed with exotic fillings like mashed chicken and avocado, perhaps, or sweet plantains and cheese, or shredded beef and shavings of Cheddar. At Caracas Arepa Bar, they're even given regal names like Reina Pepiada (chicken and avocado) and La Pelua (beef and Cheddar). They come in twelve varieties and are served in plastic baskets, like burgers, only instead of ketchup and fries, you get to enjoy them with bowls of nata (sour cream) and fried plantains.
