Charge: Upscale Mexican & Italian fare
Corpus Delicti: El Barzon is the Andiamo’s of Mexican food: high priced and bland. Anglos and wanna-be Hipsters seem to love it, since they are there in great numbers while there is tellingly not a Mexican patron in sight. Neither is there any guacamole or ceviche, which along with chocolate, are the 3 great contributions of Mexico to world cuisine.
As far as I can tell, El Barzon’s only attractions are its spotless floors and relatively bare walls devoid of the obligatory Corona posters which adorn its competitors’ interiors, neither of which are enough to tempt me away from the far cheaper and tastier Mexican food offerings just down the street, or from the vastly superior Italian fare of Giovanni’s.
Opinion: Live a little and try something more authentic before Donald Trump builds his wall.
