I haven't had good Mexican food like this in so long! First off, they have a great beer and drink menu. I had the Michelada Cubana, which was delicious and spicy. I ordered the quesadilla with huitlacoche, which was absolutely perfect. Then, for dessert, I...More

Blue Corn is in the heart of the Italian Market between Talluto's and Claudio's. Inside, there are about 25 small tables and then seats at the bar. Inside, it is pretty tight so it may pose a challenge for those in wheelchairs though it is...More
