New to the scene

A surprise new restaurant has hit the Beverly Hills food scene this month. Cantina Frida is a more modern (and definitely more upscale) offshoot of the Frida Mexican Cuisine mini-chain that circles Southern California, but this location boasts more than 180 seats, a gold-tinted bar, and lots of private dining. The tony outlet at 252 N. Beverly Drive — formerly a Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse — features a menu filled with big plates of skirt steak and fish, as well as classics like tacos and enchiladas. The restaurant is open now for lunch through dinner.
