A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: $20 gets you $40 worth of contemporary Mexican cuisine at Frida Restaurant & Bar. Inspired by the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, Frida Restaurant & Bar brings a modern feel to Mexican dinning with a fresh take on traditional dishes in a contemporary setting. The menu consists of Mexican fare with interesting twists such as the Camarones al Guajillo, featuring jumbo shrimp smothered in guajillo pepper sauce ($26), or the slow-cooked Pollo Pibil ($24), a half chicken in banana leaves and annatto seeds ($24). Though confused vampire advocacy groups hate steak, restaurant patrons will enjoy the 14 oz. Carne Asada ($32), served with frijoles charros, guacamole, and seasonal vegetables. To keep pace with the menu, the dining room is decorated in contemporary fashion, with dark wooden furniture and a sleek modern bar. A reservation is required to redeem this Groupon, to cut down on bolt from the blue extraterrestrial salsa parties.
