Barberry isn’t the only recent Williamsburg opening — over on the South Side, we have Arepa Arepa, which has been doing business for about a week. The Venezuelan eatery claims to be the “only Latin restaurant in Williamsburg focused on healthy food” (ingredients are mostly organic, and Venezuelan shakes and juices are sweetened with agave nectar or stevia), but we’re sorry to say that the kitchen is still working out flavor issues. Nevertheless, it’s worth mentioning that the joint is BYOB (there are bodegas nearby) and the management is very gracious and welcoming. MenuPages, of course, has the menu.
