Luis serves this all up in a classic little two-red-booths-and-a-counter space — like you would find in any large city. Tucking into a booth and watching the shop's bustle has real beyond-Maine charm. Luis is in the process of expanding his restaurant, and behind a long curtain a bunch of new tables are going in. I hope that doesn't dilute the shop's cozy charm, but I doubt it will. In the summer you can eat outside.
Mainers are also known for being gruff upon first acquaintance, but fundamentally warm and loyal. Perhaps this explains our affinity for Venezuela — or its oil at least. In bringing first-rate arepas to Maine, Luis's offers a delicious way to deepen that affinity. ^
