Caracas Arepa Bar
In today’s episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with co-owner of Caracas Arepa Bar, Maribel Araujo. Caracas is a Venezuelan arepa bar with 3 locations in NYC — one in Manhattan in the Lower East Side, one in Brooklyn, and a 3rd summer location in Rockaway Beach. Maribel’s business journey has not been without challenges, as one of her locations was damaged in a fire, and another washed away by Superstorm Sandy. Her ongoing stories of resilience are sure to inspire.
