Rumors have been flying around for a while now that Chicago chef Art Smith might be cooking for Senator Barack Obama in the White House should he win the presidency. Here's one Obama dining habit that has been confirmed: His favorite restaurant is Rick Bayless's haute-Mexican Topolobampo in Chicago, according to an article this weekend in the Wall Street Journal. Now that's one choice we can stand by: F&W chose Bayless to be part of our incredible first class of Best New Chefs way back in 1988 (other winners for that year include Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud).
Some of Bayless's stellar Mexican recipes:
Creamy Enchiladas with Chicken, Tomatoes and Green Chile
Guacamole Three Ways: Simple, Herby or Luxurious
Carne Asada with Black Beans
Roasted Fresh Chile Salsa
