Eva has always enjoyed cooking for her family, using original recipes, roasting chiles and preparing homemade tortillas daily. Today her son Fernando has helped her expand on her dream. His experience and eye for architecture are what have brought the Norte location to where it is today. The courtyard reminds the family of buildings they would admire in Mexico along with high ceilings and authentic detailed architecture and décor. The Cornejo’s truly wish for you to experience what they have come to love and that is, to serve you as our guest and make you feel like family.
