NEWS: Disney Unveils Next Celebrity Chef Restaurant at Disney Springs

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any more celebrity chefs to add to the Disney Springs dining lineup, Disney manages to find another. This time it’s Bravo star Rick Bayless and the restaurant is Frontera Fresco, offering authentic Mexican cuisine such as such as hand-crafted tortas, tacos, salads, fresh-made guacamole and classic Mexican braised meat entrees, all crafted with his time-honored recipes.





 

From the Disney Parks Blog:

Bayless is probably best known for winning the title of Bravo TV’s “Top Chef Masters,” and his highly rated National Public Television Series, “Mexico–One Plate at a Time,” is in its 10th season. His popular Chicago restaurants include Frontera Grill (which received a Beard Award for Outstanding Restaurant in 2007); Topolobampo; Xoco, and several locations for Frontera Fresco.

Those six James Beard Foundation Awards, by the way, are for two cookbooks; Midwest Chef of the Year; National Chef of the Year; Humanitarian of the Year, and Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America. Welcome to Disney, Chef Bayless.

“I’m thrilled to bring Frontera Fresco to Disney Springs and share my passion for Mexican cuisine with the families who visit Orlando every year,” Bayless said.
