Such a fun night with fantastic food! I wanted to ask for seconds on everything but didn’t want to be THAT person, except I couldn’t hold back from asking for seconds of the dessert bc it was so delicious. Such an eclectic apartment with an interesting story behind every piece. Had a blast with both Gustavo and the guests - we were all exchanging numbers and taking group pics by the end of the evening. Great experience overall!

This was absolutely wonderful! The cocktail of the night was a very tasty passion fruit and rum concoction that we all loved. The food reminded me of being at my friend’s abuelita’s house on a Sunday night in Tucupita where she filled us with stories and glorious food back when I was a teenager. It was very authentic with some fun twists. Definitely go do this!

His East Village gorgeously decorated place and his exquisitely prepared welcoming drink (appetizer and main dish) to the dessert were a precious gift and experience for me and my husband on a Friday evening. We were educated about Venezuelan cuisine and history and entertained by his irresistible charm and humor about 3 hours. The food was so delicious . You need to try Gustavo’s Flan! It was very enchanting for the night. Highly recommended for a special date and friends’ reunion.
