This brunch from celeb chef Rick Bayless is not to be missedtoo bad its served only on Saturdays. Be sure to check out the huevos Fronterizos with sausage and biscuits.

Try the mole. Trust me, even if you don't usually like mole, you will like this mole. Rick Bayless is a god of cuisine!

Atop his pioneering casual Mexican place, chef Rick Bayless uses portable, self-watering containers to grow several varieties of tomatoes and chiles used in the "rooftop salsa.

The mojitos are amazing. And don't miss the queso fundido appetizer - chorizo, jack, fresh tortillas. Wow.

Rick Bayless' mexican haven is a Chicago institution spawning spinoffs around the globe of south of the border fare from street food to high end. [Eater 38 Member]

Order the ceviche trio and bring a broom to sweep up the pieces of your brain that will break upon eating it.

The Grill maintains a purist's approach to Mexican cuisine, much like its sister restaurant Topolobampo, but in a more casual setting. Try the grilled duck breast in a chile-corn-mushroom sauce.

Their guac and ceviche are worth the trip!

Expect stellar versions of Mexican classics like enchiladas, mole and flautas; spot-on ceviches; and, for Saturday brunch, white-corn pancakes with whipped goat cheese.

We made reservations 2 months in advance, were slightly concerned by the lack of familiarity of the menu, but very pleased with the food. And Rick was there meeting the guests! Thumbs way up!

"For two decades, this has been the spot for a vibrant slice of Mexico City, a place to chow down on ceviches, earthy mole, wood-grilled steak tucked into housemade tortillas." Time Out on TripExpert

Frontera offers a vibrant slice of Mexico City, a place to chow down on ceviches, earthy mole, wood-grilled steak tucked into housemade tortillas and, of course, insanely good margaritas.
