Areppas Celebrates One Year in New York City



Located in Midtown East, Areppas, a fast-casual eatery serving up Venezuelan cuisine, just celebrated its first birthday! Owners Celestino Diaz and Brooke Carrie Hil opened up shop to showcase Diaz’s Venezuelan roots with easy, fast and healthy options for any hardworking New Yorker.


Customers can make create their own bowls, salads or arepas, or choose from a selection of house specialties. For those who aren’t familiar, arepas are a classic Latin American maize-based sandwich-style pocket often filled with savory fillings like meats, rice and veggies. Areppas has different arepas to choose from, including the Verde (made with cilantro, parsley and lime masa), Roja (made with beet masa), Sol (made with orange lentils and carrots masa) and the classic Blanca. Stuffed with your favorite fillings like short rib, plantains and avocado, it make for a delicious and filling meal.



Side dishes like empanadas, cachapas, lentil salad, carrot salad, and our favorite, the tequeños, a delicious cheese stick. It’s a great spot to grab a quick lunch between meetings or stop by for dinner.

Plus, with every meal sold, Areppas helps to feed a hungry child in Latin American through UNA X UNA.
