Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s deal: for $20, you get dinner for two at Frida’s Mexican Restaurant in Mill Creek (up to a $41.85 total value). Dinner includes:
- Any one appetizer (up to a $9.95 value)
- Any two entrees (up to a $15.95 value each)
Brother-and-sister chef team Antonio and Rocio brings authentic seasonal Mexican recipes to Frida’s menu with delicious frequency, preparing their complex sauces daily. Whet a keening appetite upon the blades of the Cielo, Mar y Tierra, a starter filled with chicken, chorizo, and shrimp salad warmly enveloped in a blanket of six handmade masa shells. Dining pairs can explore the entree selection with Remedios Varo (boneless roasted chicken thighs stuffed with spinach and feta) or Lomo Orozco (a roll of pork and beef tenderloin wrapped around a veggie and chorizo stuffing). Much like the name of the establishment, Frida’s décor is drawn from Mexican surrealist Frida Kahlo’s work. The dining atmosphere of murals, paintings, and works provides a more intimate and romantic setting than normal cantina-style dining establishments, and a more satisfying spread than a movie set peppered with plastic food.
Frida's Mexican Restaurant
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.
