It’s been three years since we first told you about Raul Castro, owner of Plaza Garibali on Washington Avenue, and his plans to bring a new Mexican restaurant and bar to the former Gavone’s location at 10th and Wolf.
Despite some setbacks along the way, the Frida Kahlo-inspired bar called Frida Cantina is finally opening.
The menu at Frida Cantina consists of “Mexican street food favorites.” As Castro told us previously, the food is “home-style Mexican food, like the way my grandma, mom, and aunts cook at home.” In addition to the Mexican food selection, you’ll of course be able to enjoy margaritas and other specialty cocktails.
The restaurant has 60 varieties of tequila and mezcal available. There are five types of margaritas on the menu, including options like Pomegranate and Chipotle. The five other specialty cocktails include Paloma, a Drunken Arnold Palmer, Mexican Sangria and more. If you’re not a liquor lover, there are still plenty of beer options with Frida Cantina’s Mexican and craft beer selection.
Frida Cantina is having their grand opening celebration on Friday, August 26. You can swing by the restaurant for lunch starting at 11 a.m., and dinner starting at 4 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday you can also stop in for brunch at the restaurant. You can follow Frida Cantina on Facebook and Instagram.
