[MUSIC] I"m Rick Bayless and I have Frontera Grill in
[UNKNOWN], almost in the heart of downtown Chicago.In Frontera Grill
we really strive to capture the regional cooking of Mexico.
I want it to be the same kind of experience
that you'd have if you were at a street stall
in Mexico or in Grandma's kitchen some place in a
small town in Mexico where a dish was really perfected.
That's what we're going for. For. Chicago is a true
reflection of the midwest, and right in the middle of
Lincoln park, there is a zoo. It's so much fun
to just stop by there, spend 30 minutes in there.
Every summer we'll pack up a picnic and go, it's
really spectacular. I like wacky places and Violet bar really
is one of those wacky places. They make a show
out of presenting their drinks which I think is just
totally fun. Park Hyatt hotel you can go out on
a terrace on the backside to be surrounded by These
gorgeous skyscrapers. I think it's really a spectacular experience and
you can only have that in one restaurant and that's
at Naomi. This is a real marvel. This city is
a beautiful place to live.
