Flavors of South America

Our menu includes old family recipes that blend the cuisines and favorite dishes of the Andes and the Caribbean – plus specials that take full advantage of fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

About Us

Orinoco: A Latin Kitchen is inspired by "taguaritas"-- rustic, inviting, family-run eateries found along Venezuelan roadsides. Our three neighborhood kitchens-- South End, Brookline Village, and Harvard Square-- are each a labor of love – opened and cared for by friends (all native Venezuelans) who are passionate about bringing authentic Latin American flavors and the warmth of traditional Latin culture to local diners. Each Orinoco offers an affordable, neighborhood-focused dining tradition that is known for being casual, lively and fun.

"...Whether you’re in Boston, Cambridge, or Brookline, there’s a killer empanada within walking distance."

with gratitude...

Say thanks and spread the love! Want to celebrate a deserving group of individuals or a favorite charity? We can help! Orinoco Catering services will prepare and deliver individually packaged meals on your behalf. With your support, Orinoco will offer “at-cost” prices for meals going to groups hard at work on the front-lines of COVID-19.  Contact us for more information...

looking forward...

We’re looking forward to the warmer weather and the re-opening of our patios, as well as the chance to restart our locations in Brookline Village and Harvard Square.  Last year was a difficult year for many of us. We are grateful to have the South End open, still working hard to serve you. With vaccinations in the horizon, we're enthused with optimism; looking forward to new beginnings, new dishes, new friends, and the opportunity to celebrate our 15th anniversary with you this summer!  Until then, we hope that you and yours remain safe, strong and healthy.
