Corazon y Miel
Bell, CA 90201
LA Weekly's Description
What you won't find at Travis Hoffacker and Robin Chopra's new Bell restaurant are tacos, or really any other Mexican standby. Guacamole? Nope — instead there's a quartered fried avocado, crusted in coconut and served with a mango chutney. There's a dish that pays homage to all manner of Mexican street treats, a bacon-wrapped, chorizo- and cheese–stuffed jalapeño, served over a bed of mayo-slicked corn, which is advertised as "elote salad." Continuing with the bacon-wrapped theme, dates get the porcine robe as well. It's a familiar dish, prepared by chef Eduardo Ruiz with the deep sweetness of the date offset by whipped cotija cheese rather than the classic blue. In the center, an almond crunches, giving the mouthful depth and nutty weight. Like any decent gastropub, Corazon serves a couple of huge, unwieldy burgers worth ruining your shirt for. Flank steak is mezcal-marinated and served a tender medium rare. You can also have it in the lomo hash, over a jumble of bell peppers and french fries with a poached egg and an almost undetectable whiff of wasabi. —Besha Rodell

Citizens of Bell and neighboring cities, no need to drive ten miles to Pasadena,Santa Monica or over the bridge east to find something good to eat. Thanks to Chef Edwardo Ruiz, we can now enjoy great food in South East Los Angeles. I recently met a friend for dinner and was really surprised by the ambiance of the restaurant. Dim lighting for a relaxed mood, restaurant offered great items on the menu. I had the Atlantic Burger that was delicious. I was expecting the burger to be served with brioche buns but to my surprise, the burger came nestle between sweet bread (pan dulce). I also had the bacon wrapped dates and bacon wrapped jalapeno both were NOM. I will definitely make this my go to spot and share with family and friends. Its located in the heart of Bell on Atlantic bwtn Florence and Gage. See you there
Tips from foursquare
Try the chefly interpretation of Mexican bar snacks, including seared slices of carnitas terrine with cubes of Coca-Cola gelee and pigskin two ways.
This restaurant has great potential, but their burger needs some tweaking.
Corazon y Miel is making a splash, with its daily changing list of inventive Latin American small plates. Creative drinks call for ingredients like Liquid Tamarind Candy and Chili Lime Candy.
Delicious food amd drinks. Love this place.
Guadalajara Cocktail changed my life. So did the Tequila Old Fashioned.
