Frontera Best Restaurant in America?

wak | May 8, 2007 05:56 AM

I really do like Frontera, and Rick Bayless has done a lot to spread appreciation of Mexican cuisine throughtout the country, and I'm a fan of his cookbooks, and even his somewhat annoying but very educational TV show, but I don't know anyone who feels that Frontera is the best retaurant in Chicago, to say nothing of the whole country.

This reminds me of those "lifetime achievement" Oscars and Grammys that they hand out to artists to whom they have never managed to award anything to in the past. Topolobampo was nominated twice in the past and didn't get the nod, although he has won several non-restaurant specific awards.

At any rate, congratulations to Rick for an outstanding career and good luck on getting one of those same-day reservations for the next few months.
