About Us

Charrúa is devoted to serving the staples of Uruguayan homemade food. Our goal is to introduce the “Uruguay Natural” of our childhood to our adoptive New York City community. We strive to recreate the local, natural, and farm-to-table concepts that we grew up with by using produce from local farmers, and products and services from local and family-owned businesses.

Charrúa is named after the original inhabitants of our native Uruguay. Today, Uruguayans refer to themselves as Charrúas, especially in sport-related activities, and the expression “la garra charrúa” symbolizes the tenacity and resiliency of the Uruguayan people.
