Silver Lake’s bygone Mare space on Hyperion has recently earned a new exterior paint job, and there’s construction life happening inside as well. It’s all in service of a new outlet of existing Glendale restaurant Mi Corazon, which means casual big-plate Mexican fare for the neighborhood.

Mi Corazon in Glendale’s Kenneth Village corridor has been around a few years, but mostly operates as a local hang doing breakfast through dinner service. That means taco plates, flautas, burritos, and the like, with beer, cocktails, and daily happy hour to boot. The same is likely true for the Hyperion address, which should mean it nestles in nicely to the family scene alongside casual Italian spot Speranza and weekend brunch dominator Barbrix down the street.

Mi Corazon is the work of owner Jeremy Swan, a longtime Los Feliz tattoo artist who has previously earned a small amount of television notoriety covering up bad ink for a reality show, and his wife Vanessa Urzua Swan. The restaurant is hiring up now and construction work inside is ongoing. Eater reached out get more specific timing, but so far hasn’t heard back.
