Frontera Cocina is an opportunity to show an “international crossroads” that authentic Mexican food is light and bright.
“If you’re looking for a burrito as big as your head, ours is not your thing,” Bayless said in a phone interview Wednesday evening.
Instead, try the guacamole and salsas that use tomatillos instead of tomatoes, “a complex, but not too complex” mole, or red chile chicken enchiladas with layers of flavor, he said.
“I want to be able to offer a little taste of Mexico,” said Bayless, a six-time James Beard Foundation award winner.
Although Frontera Cocina wants to appeal to many diners, there are still dishes — such as the cochinita pibil torta — that are “uncompromised” on the menu, Bayless said.
