Afterward, we needed a little siesta! Not gonna lie. Now, we're back on Poland Street and look forward to welcoming all our new friends from Regents Park, very soon.

TIME OUT LOVE AWARDS: CAST A VOTE OUR WAY
We love a bit of praise - self aggrandising is one of our greater talents. Its a sort of Dutch / Mexican courage. Your feedback is lovely of course - but being honest, now we'd like a trophy for our tequila shelf.
With that in mind, TIME OUT has launched a 'Show the Love Campaign' and we encourage you to get involved and VOTE FOR US.
Support the businesses you adore in London -- ideally, small independent ones that keep on trucking, looking after you with heart and soul.

Brewdog Takeover, Monday 7 May: More Tacos, No Problems
If you just can't get enough of our Cinco de Mayo action, we're taking over the Brewdog Soho kitchen, Monday the 7th of May, Midday - 11 pm.
Enjoy some of the UK's finest craft beers alongside its most finely crafted tacos. Studiously debate whether a California-style IPA pairs better with caramelised flavours of pork carnitas, creaminess of guacamole, or the crisp lime scents of baja fish. In this argument, everybody wins.
'Cinco de Drinko' Mariachi Brunch, in partnership with Casamigos
Being as we are, specialists in both hangover cause and cure, we know any good bank holiday party has to include a cracking, restorative brunch.
For our 3-day brunch fiesta, Casamigos giving each table a FREE flight of their 3 tequilas (!!!) paired with Corazon’s our signature Sangrita and new Verdita, while supplies last. We'll be debuting several new dishes, and you'll enjoy live mariachi performances booked over the three days.

COCKTAILS FOR SURVIVAL.
Another tour of sorts, this time inspired by everyone's favourite Mexico-loving president, in case you too are feeling the need for a stiff drink.
Whilst we try not to get too political, we felt this was an absurdity London could embrace, or at least drink to. And let's face it, there's no shortage of material.
Join us for a limited-edition cocktail list which includes amongst others, the ImPEACHment Margarita, Dark & Stormy Daniels, and the Harvey Wallbuilder. Best served with an IOU from Mexico.
DINING AT THE BAR COUNTER
Due to popular demand, we've now made our bar counter reservable at off-peak times, for groups up to three guests. The same menu is served at both the restaurant and counter. Reservation times are up to 6:30 pm in the evening, Monday to Saturday. After the first sitting, the counter is operated on a walk-in basis.
You are very welcome to come by, put your name on our wait list, leave a number and we'll call you when your seats are ready, whilst you enjoy a drink nearby.
MAC & WILD x CORAZON COLLAB
Corazon is proud to team up with our friends and neighbours at Mac & Wild, to serve a unique collaborative taco, the M&W Venison Carne Asada, utilizing the celebrated Ardgay Gamevenison that has become synonymous with the renowned Scottish restaurant. Mac & Wild serves un-fussy, understated Scottish food using high-quality ingredients, much like what we have tried to do with respect to Mexico.
The M&W Venison Carne Asada has been lovingly created by our Chef and Co-Founder Paul Daniel, and consists of lightly grilled venison topside from Mac & Wild, spiced achiote marinade, pickled turnip, crispy fried kale leaves, smoky chipotle mojo and & redcurrants. Priced at £10 for 2 tacos and launching on Monday 15th January, the dish will be available for two weeks at both Corazón in Soho, and at Mac & Wild in Fitzrovia.
CABRITO GOAT / JAMES WHETLOR DINNER
This 31st of January we launch the first of our one-off producer led dinners aimed at celebrating our love and appreciation for independent and innovative UK producers.
The first of these collaborations will see chef Paul team up with James Whetlor of Cabrito, the award-winning kid goat supplier and specialist. As an ex-chef, James founded Cabrito in 2012, feeling he should do something about the waste of male billy goats by the dairy industry – he thought that there had to be a better solution than euthanizing them as a by-product at a few hours old. Calling on his 10 years’ of chef experience and contacts, James set up Cabrito Goat Meat and began working with goat dairies to supply some London’s most celebrated restaurants.
This ticketed event, priced at just £35pp, will include an introduction to Cabrito by James, followed by a 3-course Mexican inspired menu designed to celebrate the meat’s unique and complex flavour profiles. The Feast style menu for the evening:
WELCOME DRINK ‘Corazon’ Margarita or Michelada
CABRITO TACO BBQ Goat Leg, Avocado Leaves, Roasting Juices, Guacamole, Habanero Pepper Salsa
GOAT BIRRIA Shoulder of Goat Stew spiced with Housemade Adobo, Guajillo, Pasilla & Ancho Chiles, Mexican Chocolate, Cumin. Served with Warm Tortillas, Chopped Onions & Tomatillo Salsa
TO FINISH Mexican Cinnamon Doughnuts and Cajeta (Goats Milk Caramel)
Wednesday, 31st of January, 7:30 pm. Tickets are sold in advance, available thru Billetto
