THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Julia Blackbird's Restaurant Review: Julia presides over her tiny kitchen, making food inspired by her Mexican, Spanish and Native American roots. Her funky, festive, colorful little restaurant is a gathering place for the Highlands neighborhood folks---people with kids and dogs sit on the outside patio, the older folks congregate inside although it gets quite warm during the summer months. For breakfast, we recently had blue corn griddle cakes with fresh peach preserves, a huge breakfast burrito smothered with homemade red chile and breakfast fruit tacos with strawberry salsa. Steamy latte comes in satisfyingly large bowls. For lunch and dinner, the hands-down favorite is a huge plate of three blue corn enchiladas---chicken with green chile, beef with red chile and cheese with tongue-tingling chile caraïbe. The guacamole is fresh, chunky and spicy. For dessert, we like chocolate density cake topped with pine nuts or hot sopapillas drizzled with honey.
