Notes: >Vida Catrina can neatly be described as a 3-in-1 restaurant and bar. Their unique dual-street entrances, three tasty and creatively prepared day-long, fusion Mexican food menus, and the comfortable and relaxing bar/patio make this a great addition to Centro’s eateries. The Calle 59 entrance is a long, narrow space lined with tables and chairs. Here is where the coffee station and their inhouse bakery items can be purchased early in the day. Take them to go, or eat there. The Calle 60 entrance (just doors up from the corner of Calle 59) has a somewhat bigger dining area and one of their two bars. The entire restaurant is decorated in the theme of colorful Catrina art. Passing beyond this section leads you outside to the airy and comfortable courtyard that sits in the center of the L -shaped restaurants. Another bar sits in the back of the patio for their nighttime look, including live music on weekends.
The concept of Vida Catrina is a restaurant-canteen. Their decoration, architecture and environment distinguishes their authentic flavor with a bit of Mexico, with other features borrowed from the bars in Spain and the pub in England. Here’s a nice little touch if you are still struggling with the language of Mexico. Vida Catrina has menus in English and English-speaking waiters. Rather than rewrite the wheel, we suggest you check out Debi Kuhn’s blog post on Vida Catrina for food descriptions.
