BURRITO WIZARD SET TO INFORM AND TITILLATE NYC

Posted in Events by burritowizard on September 29, 2010

Adjacent to the art of Rob Pruitt, and with the myriad genius associated with Safe Crackers, BW has been invited to elevate the recognition, and cultural understanding of the burrito.  “We’ve come along way”, the Wizard said when asked for comment.  Although some may scoff at the burrito, and those who love it “we shall not relent”, said the Wizard.  “Burrito history is a relatively recent happening in the grand scheme of upright cognizant humans… …Although there were forms used resembling ‘burritos’ by early man, the modern ‘burrito’ is a construct of the last half century”  -B.W.

ORIGIN

Posted in Ethos by burritowizard on January 30, 2009

My Burrito Quest began in Washington DC at the now legendary Burrito Brothers in Georgetown 1992.  This was the first time I heard the term “California Style Burrito”.  Burrito Brothers quickly became a phenomenon and my teenage office.  Locations readily opened all over town… The franchises’ decline began when the growing chain: Chipotle, originally from Denver, CO and partly owned by McDonalds, opened in 1999.  Slowly Burrito Brothers closed throughout the city.  Other chain burrito joints opened…  Today there are only 3 Burrito Brothers locations remaining (that I know about).  Capitol Hill (which has a different recipe), Union Station food court (original recipe) and Falls Church, VA (which I have never been to).  In 2000 I moved to Los Angeles, CA where I found many other burritophiles… It seems that burritos are to the west coast what pizza is to the east.
