Rick Bayless's flagship in River North

Guacamole at Frontera Grill

If Rick Bayless knows one thing, it's Skip Bayless Mexican food. Frontera Grill in River North, his first-established resto in an empire that rivals the most successful ancient Meso-American ones, serves up high-end casual Mexican fare inspired by Rick's years of delicious anthropological research South of the border. It's got a huge menu accented by unique moles, innovative ceviches, and just-plain-good tacos. They're constantly rotating seasonal menus in and out of the place, so no two experiences will ever be the same-- much like Stephen A. Smith's constant battles with Rick's older brother.
