Congratulations To The Class Of 2015!

16 May

Hola FRIDA fans,

It’s hard to believe that graduation time is upon us again. This truly is a fantastic time of the year. The days are longer, the weather is warming and FRIDA becomes a very festive graduation destination.

That’s right, every year we open our doors to college, high school and even junior high grads as they gather the family and celebrate their accomplishments. We can build custom menus, rent out sections of the restaurant or just fire up a congratulatory tres leches cake!

We also become quite busy on the catering side, bringing family-style platters to homes across the southland. Whether is a backyard buffet, a giant recital hall or a quiet gathering of family and friends, we can accommodate meals of every size and are happy to deliver!

Our Beverly Hills restaurant fills up quickly with families from schools like USC, LMU and Pepperdine. And if the lucky grad happens to be over 21, our master bartenders can certainly turn their special night into a major fiesta!

FRIDA Westwood has become the go-to spot for UCLA grads, though they’ve still got a few more weeks until commencement. Nevertheless, we invite families to book their spaces early and ensure everyone has the perfect celebration. We can even rent out the entire restaurant if you want to “go big” for your 2015 superstar.

So give us a call at (310) 278-7666 in Beverly Hills or (310) 209-0666 in Westwood. And if you want some special catering, reach out at (310) 278-0666. We would LOVE to celebrate this next great milestone with you and kick off an incredible SoCal summer!

Welcome Back UCLA!

23 Sep

Greetings again from your friends at FRIDA,

It’s hard to believe that UCLA is now back in session after three glorious months in the summer sun. But there’s no reason to dread that first week of school anymore, especially since you have FRIDA Westwood right around the corner!

We can’t wait to celebrate with the latest batch of proud, hard-working Bruins. And we’ll be kicking off Thursday College Nights just like we’ve always done, with Happy Hour Specials, delicious entrees and lively music for that impromptu dance floor.

FRIDA Westwood is also adding plenty of new Back-To-School treats to the menu. This month, we’re reinstating our famous Chile en Nogada plate, which includes a delicious Poblano chile covered in white walnut sauce and sprinkled with red pomegranates. And let’s not forget the crunchy Tacos, special Ceviche selections and Tequila-infused cocktail creations!

And in case you haven’t noticed, FRIDA Westwood remains decked out in Bruin Blue. We proudly broadcast every football game on our HDTVs and offer cerveza specials for anyone with a UCLA ID. So make sure to take advantage of every collegiate event our restaurant has to offer (and that includes UCLA Sunday Brunch!).

Go through your first day initiations, put the posters back on the walls, then head down to FRIDA on Lindbrook for an official “Welcome back to Westwood” fiesta!

Host Your Graduation Party At FRIDA!

28 May

To be honest, summer may be our favorite time of the year. The warm weather calls for cool Margaritas, international tourists are always dropping by and we get to host amazing fiestas for all the recent LA graduates! That’s right, FRIDA Graduation Parties have now become a SoCal staple (particularly at our Westwood location).

It doesn’t matter if you’re a proud USC alum, an LMU grad or you’re walking in a few weeks for UCLA. FRIDA has hosted parties for everyone and we love doing it! For starters, our Westwood patio offers some great ambiance for large groups who want to enjoy the westside sun. Over in Beverly Hills, we’ve been known to rent out the entire dining room for students and their families. Or there’s plenty of nights we host intimate evenings with just Mom & Dad. We can cater to every situation and we’ll make sure the “Class of 2013” gets a proper tribute.

And keep in mind, FRIDA caters too. So if you prefer to host your graduation party at home or at a banquet hall, you can still enjoy all of our delicious taco and ceviche platters. And if you want to go big, that’s fine too. We can coordinate mariachi bands, special desserts or an open bar for those who want to take advantage of the Westwood dance floor.

We all know that Mexican food is an essential part of every SoCal graduation party. And if you want delicious carne plates, juicy pescado, world-famous molcajete and the best Margaritas in town, you know who to call! Let FRIDA be your go-to party planners. Just reach out to our Beverly Hills or Westwood locations, give us your details, then let us take care of the rest.

And all you Bruins, don’t forget to ask about the FRIDA Westwood discounts.

Felicidades Class of 2013!

Fish Fridays, Easter Brunch & A Whole Lot More

10 Mar

Hola FRIDA fans, we thought things would slow down after the rush of Valentine’s Day, but we were absolutely WRONG! March is turning into a major month in the land of Mexican Cuisine, which made us want to share a few tidbits with you.

Tidbit #1: Fish Fridays

All of you Lent observers know about this sacred rule. Sticking to the strict fish diet every Friday until Easter can be tough to swallow. But with the options that FRIDA has in store, you’ll be wishing every day was seafood day. We already told you about our new Ceviche selections, but on top of that, we’re offering Halibut Primavera, Camarones al Tequila and our signature Pescado Tacos. Which, by the way, are also available at our sister FRIDA TACOS restaurants.

Tidbit #2: March Madness

Calling out specifically to the FRIDA Westwood crowd, March Madness has become a very big tradition. This year, we’ll be offering Happy Hour specials, big screen HDTV’s and special discounts to anyone with a UCLA ID (Go Bruins!). And trust us, the farther our boys in blue and gold go, the more fun Westwood Village is going to get!

Tidbit #3: St. Patrick’s Day

Good news all you Irish-blooded Mexican cuisine fans. St. Patrick’s Day falls on a weekend this year, which means you can enjoy endless FRIDA beers (or margaritas) without having to wake up for work the next morning. We’ll be turning on the green at both our Beverly Hills and Westwood locations this March 17, so come on by and celebrate St. Paddy’s “Verde Style.” And keep in mind, we’ll be working be several local taxi services to ensure that everyone has a designated driver.

Tidbit #4: Easter Brunch!

One of our favorite traditions, Easter Brunch is back in full bloom at FRIDA. We’re actually putting together the special menus now, so stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates on which delicacies we’ll be serving (and where the eggs will be hiding). And make sure to invite the WHOLE familia. We love accommodating young ones, grandparents and everyone in between!
