Frida Mexican Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Frida Mexican Cuisine’s Glendale outpost of the Beverly Hills original is one of the high points of the dining scene at The Americana at Brand. An expansive patio provides people-watching while enjoying good chips with a trio of salsas, but the interior is sleek, with soaring wood-clad walls, contemporary lighting and a large, dramatically illuminated bar. This is no neighborhood cantina, and the menu is equally distinctive. Frida Glendale continues owner Vicente Del Rio's passion for offering a more sophisticated brand of traditional Mexican cuisine, with dishes such as ceviche de camarón, carpaccio mixto with tuna and shrimp, and sautéed prawns in an orange-tequila sauce. Oaxacan mole poblano satisfies, as do the cochinita platter of slow-cooked pork and the chipotle barbecue ribs. More than a dozen wines are offered by the glass, but the focus is on more than 30 available tequilas and mezcals that go into a wide array of margaritas and specialty cocktails. For dessert, you’ll find churros, flan and tres leches cake. Also located at 236 S. Beverly Dr., Beverly Hills, 310-278-7666.
