In the heart of Brookline Village, Orinoco offers a Pan-Latin menu that combines Andean and Caribbean flavors and creates a delicious blended cuisine. The founder of Orinoco, Andres Branger, emphasized that everyone’s help is needed during times like these.
“It will require a village for everyone to put their little grain in and to try to help one another,” Branger said.
Despite the minimized hours because of COVID-19, Orinoco is still providing our community with these great flavors through take-out (UberEats, Grubhub, Doordash, Caviar, or ordering via phone). Gift cards are also available for your friends and family to taste their delicious food! They are turning their attention to providing support during this crisis by allowing customers to buy a meal for frontline workers or donate so they can continue to help those who are in need. Orinoco was founded 14 years ago and since then, it has brought the Venezuelan culture to the Brookline community, as well as it’s background. Lots of their ingredients come from South America and Florida, creating a combination of flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Their Brookline location on Harvard street is a great space for family gatherings, celebrations, and more. Orinoco has established a family culture and a sense of familiarity in the restaurant. You can donate or buy a meal on their website and help keep Orinoco’s staff employed. Orinoco will be here for the long haul and reminds us that we will get through this.
