Host Your Holiday Party At FRIDA!

18 Nov

Can you believe we’re now halfway through November? In a blink of an eye, we went from Halloween preparations to full-blown Holiday mode. And that’s definitely not a bad thing…especially if you’re thinking of hosting an office dinner or family party. You see, FRIDA is now available to handle all of your holiday needs and we look forward to making your Thanksgivings, Christmases, Kwanzaas and Chanukahs VERY memorable!


That’s right, from now until the end of the year, our restaurant is your restaurant. Book a section of Beverly Hills, reserve the Westwood bar…or just close down the whole place for your own private party! We’re extremely flexible for the holiday season and would love to host you and your extended amigos.


Whether it is for a company, a family or a charity, we’ll work with you to hammer down a competitive price (and a delicious array of entrees). We’ll also make sure you get a fantastic festive experience, complete with special menu items, specialized decorations…even Mariachis if the occasion calls for it.


And if you’d prefer to do your Mexican Cuisine event at home, we can handle that too. FRIDA Catering is available seven days a week. Check out our special site for a look at the large platter selections we offer. Wherever you decide to host your annual events, we can be there and ready to serve.


So make sure to keep FRIDA in mind as you make those final fiesta preparations. Because who wouldn’t love some peppermint flan and egg nog margaritas to go along with all that holiday cheer?

The FRIDA Holidays Are Almost Here!

18 Dec

Believe it or not, we’ve got less than a week to go until Santa arrives and you know he’ll be craving some horchata and churros before he climbs back up that chimney! So, why not prepare yourself for a festive Feliz Navidad with a little help from FRIDA?

Actually, we’ll get to our Christmas tidings later. The first order of business is for all of you Hanukkah celebrators. The festival of lights starts on Tuesday, so you get first dibs on all the holiday goodies FRIDA has to offer. It’s easy to build up an appetite on those “Eight Crazy Nights,” so may we recommend a few tasty Mexican options?

Night 1
– Sopa de Tortilla: Because let’s face it, it’s been FREEZING lately.
Night 2 – Tacos Combo: Chicken by candlelight, delicious!
Night 3 – Resplandor de Mango: Balance the diet with our fruit-filled salad.
Night 4 – Enchiladas Suizas: Piping hot and covered in tomatillo sauce!
Night 5 – Camarones al Ajillo: Sauteed prawns for noche cinco.
Night 6Mole Tasting: Menorah Mole!
Night 7 – Arrachera Nortna: One big hearty meal before the celebration’s over
Night 8 – Pastel de Chocolate: A festival of lights finale that’s perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth!

Now back to Christmas. Next weekend our little holiday elves are going to be working extra hard in the kitchen. While most businesses close down on the Dec 25, FRIDA Glendale’s Sunday brunch will be in full swing and you can bet we’ll be singing live versions of “Feliz Navidad!” But make sure to get there early, because we’ll be shutting down in the afternoon.

For those looking to spend the holiday at home, we highly recommend picking up a bag of signature FRIDA tamales. We’ve serving up both Green and Red tamales to help you coordinate with your festive sweaters. Plus, anyone going to 12am Saturday mass knows they make a great after-midnight snack!

All of you who celebrate the feast of Kwanzaa, don’t worry. We haven’t forgotten about you either. We’ll most certainly be open on Dec 26 and serving up yummy vegetable dishes (you MUST try our Al Tequila ensalada), Chicken Pozole (which is basically like a Mexican stew), and Pastel de Tres Leches for dessert.

And don’t get us started on New Year’s…We’ll have more exciting news on that holiday in our next post (Stay Tuned!). Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa FRIDA friends, we hope to see you in the restaurant this week!
