“Truly a hidden gem!” “In an area with a ton of different Latin and central American options, you’ll be hard-pressed to find higher quality ingredients or more friendly staff than here. The food was great, the drinks were amazing, and the decor was perfect.” “What a great new restaurant!”
These enthusiastic remarks come from some of the earliest customers at DC Corazon, a women/minority-owned and -operated Mexican restaurant recently opened in Petworth. With authentic flavors—one reviewer comments, “Honestly felt like I was back in Mexico City”—and affordable foods, you’ll likely be just as excited about this new addition.
Owner Josefina Darui opened DC Corazon as an homage to both her native Mexico and her more recent home here in DC. Each detail has a bit of heart (corazon) inspiring it. Paired with the scents of Mexico City, the restaurant’s eye-catching decor draws you in, depending on its delicious food and friendly service to continue the excitement through your meal.
