A new Mexican cantina recently debuted in University City. Diego’s, from the owners of Frida’s, opened on October 13, featuring elevated street food with an emphasis on small plates and craft cocktails.
The concept comes from Frida’s owners Natasha Kwan and Rick Roloff. As previously reported by Feast, the restaurant fills the space that was formerly home to Momos Greek Restaurant next door to Frida’s, which originally opened in July 2012.
“We both have a passion for Mexican cuisine,” Kwan says. “My husband, Rick, grew up just north of Mexico in a border town around traditional Mexican food, not Tex-Mex. I lived in Chicago for 10 years prior to moving back to St. Louis and there’s a taqueria on every corner.”
Diego’s is now open in the former home of Momos Greek Restaurant
