Phil Vettel redeems the Tribune today

Mike G | Oct 18, 200205:04 PM

So after bagging on Cheap Eats, Check Please and whatever else, it seems only fair to say that today's Friday section story by Phil Vettel is Chow-worthy: he takes hard to get into places and comes up with obscure alternatives. I'm not convinced that Sabatino's is a very precise alternative to Mia Francesca, but anything that mentions Ixcapuzalco as a Frontera alternative is okay by me, and plenty of the places he comes up with are impressively obscure and interesting sounding. This would make a great ongoing feature, frankly.
