Costas Arepa Bar
South American Arepas
Owner Ronny Abenhaim is originally from Colombia and moved to the US as a child. After a career in restaurant management and working alongside chefs like Eric Ripert and Jonathan Waxman, Abenheim opened Costas Arepas Bar with a mission to bridge global cultures through arepas. This popular Midtown destination is known for mashups like the Australian-inspired “Down Under” arepa with avocado and peri peri sauce; the “Yankee” with ribs and coleslaw; and Asian influenced “Mr. Chang” with crispy chicken and Korean barbecue sauce.
