KNEAD Hospitality + Design founders, Jason Berry and Michael Reginbogin, in partnership with celebrated chef Roberto Santibañez (Chef/owner of NYC’s acclaimed Fonda restaurants) opened Mi Vida in Washington DC’s District Wharf. Santibañez, a native of Mexico City and one of the most respected authorities on Mexican cuisine in the US, features a menu inspired by street food and traditional Mexican home cooking, in a modern, elevated presentation. Guests can enjoy traditional dishes such as Carne Asada and Tacos de Carnitas, Foie Gras with Churros, and Caviar Gorditas. Hand-crushed guacamole is offered in unique iterations including a version with blue cheese, grapes and almonds. Mi Vida offers a wide selection of Tequilas and Mezcals, in addition to specialty cocktails and margaritas.
The stunning 11,000 square foot water-front restaurant boasts floor to ceiling windows with a panoramic view of the Potomac River. Mi Vida’s design incorporates The Wharf’s industrial aesthetic infused with contemporary and historic Mexican décor. The restaurant seats approximately 350 guests and offers multiple private dining rooms as well as waterfront patio seating, equipped with fire pits and a sun-shading, climate-controlled pergola.
