30 Years of Frontera Grill

When Rick and Deann Bayless opened their regional Mexican restaurant, they shared a wall with a bar called the Rendezvous -- for a reason -- and a ceiling with rent-by-the-hour flophouses. Now, with numerous acclaimed restaurants to his name, a long-running PBS show, a popular podcast, a line of food products, and a local agriculture-supporting non-profit, Bayless says, "Sometimes I feel like the old guy on the street."
Clockwise from top left: Abraham Conlon of Fat Rice, Beverly Kim and Johnny Clark of Parachute, Rick Bayless of Topolobampo, and Erling Wu-Bower of Nico Osteria.
