“Gracias de corazón!” Downtown Latin American staple closing

An ethnic downtown restaurant will be closing its doors after 13 years.

El Arepazo will be leaving their flagship location in Pearl Alley though the exact closing date has yet to be determined.

“It is with mixed feelings of excitement and nostalgia that we are announcing the closing of our flagship Arepazo restaurant downtown on Pearl St.,” wrote El Arepazo on Facebook.


Arepazo Tapas at 93 N. High St. in Gahanna and Arepazo Bar Grille at 515 S. High St. in the Brewery District will remain open.

The restaurant was well know for their authentic Latin American food, with a special focus on Venezuelan and Colombian, and expansive bar offerings.
