Bocas Grill: Embassy of the Arepa and Latin Fusion in Florida

Bocas Grill was born from an obsession: to heal the nostalgia left by the flavors that Latino communities lost or miss dearly and who feelas though there is a void regarding their food in the American market. Venezuela inspired us to take the risk of offering Arepas and Chichas in Miami. And in a very short time, Venezuelan cuisine, along with our fusion of Latin American food, made us a standard among Hispanics in South Florida.

Our Wok-Smoked Lomo, Parilla Mixta, and more than 30 arepa fillings inspired a story of vibrant flavors, top-quality ingredients, colors, scents, and memories… Bocas Grill creates an experience that takes clients on a trip through South America.

Our recipe is as simple as it is convincing, one that is based on receiving our entire community with a smile and a “Welcome home.” After four years, thousands of families have gotten to know us and faithfully keep coming back for more of our gastronomic offer. This show of love and support has made us grow very quickly, even more than we expected.

This dream came to life in November 2014, in a modest space, but with a team eager to show diners why In Arepa We Trust. With effort and in a short time, we managed to extend our business hours and went from closing at 4:00 p.m. to receiving visits until 11:00 p.m. at our Bocas Grill El Original venue:

 3399 NW 72nd Ave, Suite 128, Miami FL 33122

After a year of hard work and discipline, our second restaurant arrived: Bocas Grill Kendall, where we began to offer our Milkshakes, causing a sensation due to its generous serving of ice cream, chocolate, and Nutella… The collective commotion surrounding the star of our menu has been chronicled and documented on social media. Our venue in Kendall is located at Kendallgate Shopping Center. 12042 N Kendall Dr, Miami, FL 33186.

In September 2017, we introduced the new Grill & Bar concept with Bocas Grill Orlando, which offers strong liquor and a new selection of USDA Prime Beef. This beef comes from 100% grass-fed cattle in small family farms in Wisconsin. Our venue in Orlando is located at 7600 Dr Phillips Blvd, Suite 22, Orlando, FL 32819.

That same year, Bocas Grill Brickell opened in December 2017. It was the second venue that offered the Grill & Bar concept and the first with capacity for 200 people. Those who walk through the vibrant city of Brickell can’t help but stop by our restaurant. This venue is located at 2525 SW 3rd Avenue, Unit CU2, Miami, FL 33129.

Today, with five fully operational locations, we dream of continuing our growth. We know that there are more people who want to taste our flavors in the United States. We have been asked to open locations in Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, Boston… This is a vibrant dream that drives us to continue working very hard to fulfill our customers’ wishes and demands.

Today, we want more and more people to join the Bocas Grill experience so that we can show them another key aspect of our philosophy: great service. Let’s have a good time together!
