Heli Mendez owned and operated a grocery store in Venezuela before moving to the United States to work as an economist. Jose Alvarez spent 17 years working as a chef in Venezuela. Orlando Escobar spent the last decade managing fast casual restaurants. These three combined their culinary experiences to found Guasaca, a laid-back eatery that specializes in traditional Venezuelan dishes and flavors. Guasaca's menu is centered around arepas––handmade corn patties similar to pita pockets––that chefs grill and stuff with ingredients ranging from shredded beef to braised tilapia. Patrons may choose one of seven signature arepas or customize their own with fillings such as baked plantains, black-eyed peas, and creamy cilantro sauce. Cooks can also layer these fresh ingredients atop bowls of rice, on leafy salads, or directly inside diners’ mouths for perfectly balanced bites.

Enlarged photographs of Guasaca’s dishes hang from lime-green walls in a vibrant dining room. Smooth wood panels line a wall of banquettes and sleek metal chairs to complement the restaurant's modern aesthetic. Meals can be devoured inside the bright eatery or on an outdoor patio in warmer months.

  • “You won't be disappointed with anything, but the Arepa's are killer good ”
