Livin' la Vida loca: A look at Uptown's newest spot

Posted By on Wed, Sep 15, 2010 at 4:18 PM

Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina opens at the EpiCentre Uptown on September 30.

The restaurant, which will be Uptown's only Mexican joint (besides Salsarita's), serves up "authentic Mexican cuisine and handcrafted margaritas."

Vida's bar is stocked with over 50 tequilas and they offer a "Skinny Margarita" which only weighs in at 100 calories. Guacamole gets made tableside on a cart by a specialized guacamole chef.  Tortilla chips are made locally and are fried up fresh when you order. A few things to remember when you go: Get the guac, carnita tacos (made of pork confit ... or, as they say, cooked in lard), and the churros.

Creative Loafing got a sneak peek today. Take a look at what's in store:
