    DISCOVER

    Mi Vida

    “Mi Vida” translates to “My Life.” However, in Mexico, “Mi Vida” means much more. “Mi Vida” is a term of endearment bestowed on close family and friends to signify love, care and importance. When one says, “Mi Vida,” they are telling someone special how much they mean to them. MI VIDA describes how we feel about our team and our guests. It is our expression of Mexican culture and cuisine as interpreted through the lens of Chef Roberto Santibañez. Our menu is rooted in the history and culinary tradition of Mexico while exploring the ever-changing boundaries of this vibrant and evolving cuisine.

    In line with the Washington DC vaccine mandate, we require proof of vaccination for every guest dining inside over the age of 12. For guests 18 and older, make sure to provide a valid photo ID. Medical and religious exemptions are accepted with a negative COVID test from the past 24 hours. There is no vaccine requirement for outdoor seating for outdoor/patio dining.

    Thank you for your understanding as we work to provide a comfortable and safe experience for both our guests and teammates. We look forward to seeing you soon.
