Fodor's Review

Chef-owner Rick Bayless wrote the book on regional Mexican cuisine—several books, actually—and here he takes his faithfully prepared regional food upscale. Next door to the more casual Frontera Grill, Topolobampo is the higher-end room, with a more subdued mood and luxury menu, though it shares Frontera's address, phone, and dedication to quality. The ever-changing $120 seven-course tasting menu showcases game, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and exotic preparations like suckling pig braised with spicy red chili and tamales stuffed with chestnuts and turkey confit. For a taste of Topolobampo without the hefty price tag, try to nab a lunch reservation.
