Who Was That Lady We Saw Rick Bayless With?

That was no lady, it was a knowledgeable fan of mole. Actually, it was Lady Gaga, who dined at Frontera Grill on Saturday and met the chef, who tweeted this photo and said “Who knew Lady Gaga is such a knowledgeable fan of mole&cochinita; pibil? Who knew she is such a warm, easy-going woman?” She was just one part of what he called a “CRAZY DAY” that included another celebrity (Food Network Chef Anne Burrell) and a benefit for Lookingglass Theatre, where Bayless is starring in the play Cascabel. Giving a first-time actor a chance certainly has done all right by Lookingglass, since Bayless reports that his auction item went for $27,000.
