This neighborhood spot in Williamsburg serves up refined Venezuelan cuisine. Owner Ivo Diaz is Venezuelan born with over 15 years experience in the NYC hospitality industry and has curated cocktail programs at places such as The Nomad Hotel. Casa Ora’s menu is inspired by Diaz’s mother, Isbelis Diaz, who is also the restaurant’s executive chef while Diaz heads up the bar program. Reflecting dishes she regularly cooked him during his childhood, expect items like bollitos pelones (corn dumplings in tomato sauce); mandocas (corn fritters with sweet plantain); and pabellon (brisket).
We are focused on bringing the beauty and nature of Venezuela to New York City. In times of political injustice upon Venezuelans, Casa Ora is dedicated to donating a portion of revenue to families forced to seek asylum due to a lack of human rights resources such as food, clean water, and government protection. Casa Ora has also partnered up with Emmy Award Nominated Photographer, Carlos Beltran, to feature his photographs on Venezuela in the form of art and take away postcards.
