Frida Bistro Celebrates 4 Years!

This past weekend, one of my favorite restaurants turned four years old! Frida Bistro celebrated their 4th anniversary by creating a special menu full of most its popular items and staff favorites. Russ and I were able to take part in the celebration with an amazing dinner full of menu items I love and ones I had never tried.

Some of my old favorites included the Lubina al Pistacho (Pistachio-Crusted Sea Bass/Corn-Cilantro-JalapeƱo Sauce/Mexican Risotto/Tri-Colored Cauliflower $26), and the Queso Fundido (Monterrey & Menonita Cheese Fondue/Choice of Poblano Peppers and Onions OR Chorizo Sausage $8). The Sea bass has always been a go-to of mine – the fish is always so tender, meaty, and beautiful, and the cilantro japapeno sauce compliments it perfectly. And, I have always said that Frida’s queso is one of the best! You can get it simple with just the cheese, or be crazy and add all the peppers, onions, and chorizo (which, you should really do). :)

Probably our favorite item of the night was one the Chef sent out – cured scallops plated on top of sweet watermelon and mango salsa. This dish tasted exactly like summertime – it may have been the best dish I have ever had a Frida. If it isn’t on their regular menu, it should be! It was outstanding. The tuna ceviche was also amazing. Frida definitely knows how to put together an amazing and fresh seafood dish.

Another favorite of the evening was the chilled avocado soup with fresh crab. It was silky and amazing, full of great flavor and fresh accents. This was certainly another dish that said “summer is on the way!”

For our second entree’, we were served the braised buffalo short ribs, which were also fantastic. Braised for 4+ hours, the meat was melt-in-your-mouth tender. (Slow Roasted Buffalo Short Ribs/Guajillo Sauce/Sauteed Vegetables/Camote Mashed Potatoes.) And to finish the celebratory meal off – we ended with amazing guava flan! YUM!

  1. All those dishes – and I mean that quite literally – look so wonderful! I haven’t been to Friday since we brunched there eons ago and I’ve somehow never made it to dinner. Even more eager to revisit it after seeing this post!
