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 two neighborhood kitchens-- 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."
