Best of Philly

2015 Mexican Restaurant

Blue Corn

This refreshing Italian Market newcomer lives somewhere between down-and-dirty South Philly taqueria and theme-y Center City eatery, with kind waiters and great, simple $9 margaritas bookending a full and surprising menu. Try the shrimp cocktail, which is spruced up with homemade vinegar; the filet mignon that’s pounded thin and smothered in melted cheese; and the light-as-air zucchini flower quesadillas. And the margaritas. Did we mention those already?
