another food adventure
Here we are at Frontera Grill, a Chicago landmark and a favorite of ours since Kim & I were first dating. This was Tiz's first visit and, since she's now eating real food, she was able to partake in some of the dishes we had ordered. Here she is getting a taste of Rick Bayless' famous cowboy beans that accompany the tacos al carbon. And no, that girly-looking drink is not a cosmo, it's my mezcal margarita. Cloaked behind its feminine hue, this mysterious and high-octane brew is defined by a charred-agave smokiness that is unmistakably manly and is simply terrific with this food. Highly recommended.
