We had dinner at Rick Bayless's flagship restaurant, Topolobampo. It's been around for more than 25 years, but we'd never tried it before, though we'd been to Frontera which is attached to Topolobampo.
The food was out of this world. Every morsel was absolutely delicious. If the Yelp reviews are representative of diner experience, they have some problems with consistency, but everything was perfect last night.
They have two seatings. We went with the early shift at 6pm. There is a selection of regular items and then a "1491 menu," which only includes ingredients available in the New World prior to the arrival of Columbus. You build your own dinner by selecting either 5 or 7 items including dessert (7 is really unnecessary--you'll be stuffed with 5). They also pair each item with wine, so a lot of wine made it around our table of six.
