THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Corazon y Miel Restaurant Review

: The ambitious young team of chefs Eduardo Ruiz and Travis Hoffacker and GM/bar manager Robin Chopra has created a charming little restaurant out of an old dive bar, and it's turning out some cutting-edge cuisine. The warm, intimate room hosts a lively mix of hipsters and locals. Latin flavors marry contemporary technique with a few bold, avant-garde touches. Signature cocktails artfully meld elements like muddled blackberries and chile lime candy. Pair them with fancy bar snacks such as tender marinated chicken hearts; dates stuffed with bacon, cotija cheese and cider; and a shrimp and octopus ceviche punctuated with smoky burnt peanuts. We like the pig skin two ways: warm, crispy chicharones alongside a bowl of silky slivers of the protein bathed in lime, chili and candied citrus zest. More substantial offerings include several burgers, a nicely cooked steelhead trout with black mole, and the braised two-pound Salvadoran whole turkey leg, its moist fall-off-the-bone meat dotted with shredded cabbage, fried capers and radishes. Finish with a chocolate cake nuanced with chipotle custard and ancho whipped cream.
