Chef María Iglesias was born and raised in the beautiful city of Puebla, Mexico. She has more than twenty (20) years of experience in the hospitality industry and truly specializes in Mexican culinary arts. In 1985, she arrived to New York, the land of opportunity, and worked hard to achieve her dream. In 2000, she successfully opened her first Mexican restaurant, La Hacienda, and in 2012 launched La Adelita Restaurant Bakery located in Woodside, Queens. After the building was demolished, Ms. Iglesias decided to explore new possibilities and in 2016 opened a new restaurant in Long Island City, Corazon de Mexico.
