Even though Mamo is in a pretty quiet part of the Marina, the food at this small Venezuelan restaurant is worth going a few blocks out of your way for before a night out. Happy Hour (Tuesday-Friday from 3-6pm) is the best time to come here, with $2 off beers and a small menu of things like pork arepas (each order includes two of them) that are filled with enough meat to be a full meal. If you get stuck at the office and miss the specials though, get the crispy chicken thigh served over polenta with olives and preserved lemon.
