Coming Soon (Is November Soon?): Rick Bayless’s Frontera Fresco

San Francisco is a city of superlative Mexican food, but the more, the merrier, right? Rick Bayless, of the Frontera empire in Chicago, is opening a branch of his quick-service Frontera Fresco restaurant (well, the second one) at the Union Square Macy’s in around two months. The one in Chicago is also in Macy’s (née Marshall Field’s), implying some sort of grand corporate scheme with nationwide consequences. Is Bayless selling out like the Bay Area’s own Tommy Keller? We hope so!
