Frontera Grill: "James Beard Winner!" Frontera Grill Topolobambo Tip by apbeaches

Frontera Grill Topolobambo, Chicago: 13 reviews and 9 photos

I was very excited about going with my family to Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill. We enjoyed Saturday morning Brunch at an outdoor table. The bar, restaurant, gifts, awards specifically the James Beard was memorable.

Perhaps I talked up the James Beard; the "Oscar of Food" & our teens were very critical. They weren't impressed with the cold chips & guacamole. They felt that they waited too long from water & refills. Our entrees were very good; I enjoyed & would have liked to go back!
