Phil Vettel redeems the Tribune today

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.
