This November, Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina will open at the Saint Louis Galleria, bringing St. Louisans another marquee dining destination to the mall’s re-emerging North End. But don’t expect traditional Mexican music and sombreros at Vida. When it comes to Mexican restaurants, Vida is a breath of fresh air, an evolved Mexican concept for a new generation.
Coupled with an exciting and modern atmosphere is a wide range of traditional, regional and contemporary Mexican-inspired foods, handcrafted margaritas and an extensive list of carefully selected 100% blue agave tequilas. The food and drink, combined with a popular American playlist will create a unique vibe that makes Vida a great option for lunch and dinner, as well as happy hour and late night.
“The atmosphere we’ve created embodies food and drink the way it should be made – by hand, from scratch, with real, quality ingredients – and we believe that’s exactly what locals are looking for when deciding where they want to eat and drink,” said Drew Graefe, Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina’s Operating Partner.
Vida’s Mexican-inspired dishes will feature a fresh take on traditional offerings, balancing slow-cooked meats and bold flavors with unique pairings and contemporary presentations. The menu includes a variety of scratch-made tacos, burritos and enchiladas, along with starters, salads and entrees.
Vida’s drink list does not fall behind their food, but rather works alongside it. The list of one hundred tequilas offers Guests unlimited ways to sip the agave, whether it’s in a signature Skinny Margarita, a celebratory shot, an exploratory flight or sharing a pitcher with friends.
The restaurant is currently hiring and is looking to fill 125 part-time and full-time positions, including servers, bartenders, hosts and cooks. For more info, visit vidastlouis.com.
