Inspired by the marriage of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera—two Mexican artists with two very different aesthetics—brother-and-sister team Antonio and Rocio Pina opened Frida’s and filled its menu with a combination of classic Mexican fare and new, regional cuisine. Recipes on the ever-changing menu come from the Pinas’ frequent visits to Mexico. Chefs douse burritos and enchiladas with chipotle chilies and dark chocolate sauce. Chicken, steak, and seafood arrive at tables in a myriad of zesty dishes, and meat-free fare includes crepes stuffed with sautéed veggies. An outdoor patio offers ample sunshine during meals while the restaurant’s interior is decorated with dark-wood accents, decadent chandeliers, and jewel-toned seating which pay homage to the work of its namesake. In addition, a floor-to-ceiling display of more than 280 bottles of tequila, cognac, and wine divides the bar and dining room and can only be passed through via osmosis.
