Cafe Frida
Cafe Frida
The artsy, handcrafted feel at Cafe Frida begins with the decor (crimson stucco walls, cowhide chairs) and extends to the food on the table. Sip a margarita mixed with fresh mango or pomegranate puree from a handblown goblet while your server prepares chunky, fiery guacamole. Cantina staples, such as enchiladas, are dependable, but the regional dishes, including a peppery lamb shank and short ribs in a tomatillo sauce, are the ones to order.

We went for a quick drink and bite before an event at the American Museum of Natural History and they quickly sold us on these guava jalepeno margaritas which were amazing. After a couple of those and some guac, we had run ourselves quite the bill for a quick bite but I definitely will be back.
