THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Itzocan Cafe Restaurant Review

: This tiny storefront, named after the owners' hometown in Mexico, is a lot more ambitious than its looks may lead you to believe. While you can order burritos (very good ones at that), this is no burrito shack. When was the last time you had crispy goat cheese ravioli with jalapeño and hoja santa or sautéed shrimp with aged tequila lime juice, guajillo, brown rice and vegetables at your local Tex-Mex? We're betting never. The cut-rate prices are as inspiring as the food.
