DÉCOR: The spirit of Mexico can be found in the ambience and décor of all Frida restaurants, beginning with the original Beverly Hills location overlooking bustling Beverly Drive. Frida was remodeled on November of 2010 to modernize its interior to more properly represent its concept of providing the best authentic Mexican cuisine in a contemporary setting. The new design has a highly innovative interior distribution and a monumental silver leaf artistic mural by artist Candida Peña. This mural surrounds the restaurant with its blues and metallic colors and the rusticity of the reclaimed wood come together with the gilded antiques and pendants in the room. A space where customers experience a delicate colonial Mexico scene that together with the exquisite flavors of Frida completes a very satisfying dining experience.
