Named after one of the most precious and unique mountains located in the middle of the Amazonian Jungle, Tepuy thrives on the idea of using simple and seasonal products, transforming their aromas, colors and textures in a walk through the richness and diversity of Venezuelan Flavors. Tepuy was featured as one of “the best Venezuelan places to eat in NYC” in 2015 by Eater New York times.
