Fans of fresh, homemade Mexican food will enjoy Diego’s Mexican Bistro when it opens Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 118 State St., in the space currently occupied by Moe’s Tavern.
“Ever since Frida’s closed, we’ve received a lot of feedback from customers who want quality Mexican food downtown,” Mohammed Barketallah, owner of Frida Mexican Grill, Moe’s and The Icon, said. “So we’re bringing the most popular dishes from Frida’s while enhancing the entire menu.”
Arturo Ubach, who previously worked at Las Cazuelas, will serve as head chef. Some familiar menu items include the chimichangas, coconut shrimp and the enchiladas rancheras. New dishes include huaraches and gluten-free mole poblano.
Patrons who remember Frida Mexican Grill will recognize the murals on the wall at Diego's, as they were imported from the old location. The award-wining margaritas and the popular happy hour specials also are returning.
