  • 2015 Best Mexican

Since 1989, James Beard award-winning chef Rick Bayless has continued to define contemporary Mexican cuisine in Chicago. Topolobampo is the upscale side (next to Frontera Grill) of Bayless’ downtown duo. Modern Mexican fare and tasting menus are paired with margaritas or a New and Old World wine list. Mezzaluna booths and modern Mexican art hang on the walls, exuding a relaxed, eclectic ambience.
