Caracas Arepa Bar, East Village, Manhattan

I don't get to eat Venezuelan food very often, especially considering that I live in Boston, where there are only 2 or 3 Venezuelan restaurants in the entire city. But New York has more than a few, including a place called Caracas Arepa Bar that sounds rather interesting.

Caracas Arepa Bar looks like a very small place, which is common for restaurants in the often-cramped, crowded East Village. But the decor inside does sound pretty nice. Items on the menu at Caracas Arepa Bar include arepas and empanadas, as well as some interesting sounding appetizers and specials. They also have something called quesillo, which is a traditional Venezuelan flan.

If anyone has tried Caracas Arepa Bar in the East Village, let me know what you think. Thanks very much!
