A Barzón is the part of a horse-drawn plow that joins the horse with the plow. The name comes from a Mexican revolutionary song that speaks about injustice in the fields. Their motto is: “Debo, no niego, pago lo justo” (“I owe, I don’t deny it, I’ll pay what is fair”).

Cocina Poblana is the cuisine of Puebla in southern Mexico. It is esteemed throughout Mexico but still relatively uncommon in the United States. Mole Poblano – a sauce made with cacao, cinnamon and dried chilis – is perhaps the most well known item.

Chef/owner Norberto Garita practiced fine Italian cooking in New York before coming to the Detroit area, where he worked eight years for Il Posto Ristorante.

Silvia Garita created the Mexican menu using her knowledge of the traditional dishes of Puebla, and takes inspiration from many recipes found online.
