The Zucca family's gone Mexican

From the Zucca and Vintage Tavern folks comes The Corner, an intimate taco/ tequila terminal with wood plank & green pleather-cushioned walls, a glass garage door opening to an enclosed patio, and walls covered with sombreros, Mexican blankets, saddles, and a cow skull, also what Pacey called that fat kid in his secret society. Along with five daily-made salsas (mango, habanero…), there'll be starters like Chihuahua queso fundido w/ chorizo & poblanos, yucca sweet potato & plantain chips w/ honey-chili-lime dip, and Dos Equis-sauteed beer mussels, which's actually every bit as strong a dish as they think. Ten tacos range from grilled gulf shrimp to the "Breakfast" (scrambled eggs, chorizo, diced potatoes, jack), but don't let those stop you from getting a "Burritos-n-Bowl", which comes with red rice, beans, and protein (roast pork, grilled steak), plus your choice of add-ons (cotija, baja slaw) and sauces like Sriracha tartar, Korean BBQ, and chipotle caesar, or what Brutus always said when Julius asked where they should get lunch, back when they were still boys.The bar's got mad Mexi-brews (Tecate, Victoria, los Modelos), micheladas (the "Hot" one includes a shot of jalapeño tequila), and 45 'quilas from Herradura to Kah, which's poured from a bottle shaped like a Day of the Dead skull, also what Pacey called the kid in his secret society who was really into lucha libre.
