2008-09-22 12:38:04   Vida has undergone new changes as of 8-01-08. Chef Nikki Trip (former chef of Theo's) is creating French/Mediterranean dishes using local, organic produce and uses only sustainable fish. Prices now range from 7.00 to 20.00. There is still a great tapas menu, including lobster gnocchi, lamb meatballs, tomato salads, etc. Vegetarian friendly place to eat! —
