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.
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. Orinoco features authentic South American wines, beers, and tropical fruit drinks. In addition, our Brookline Village location offers Caribbean-inspired specialty cocktails.
Orinoco's community spirit comes through thanks to the friendship, collaboration, and dedication of Andres Branger, Carlos Rodriguez and Martha Garcia.
