Frontera Fresco

Marshall Field’s-turned-Macy’s has brought celeb chef Rick Bayless into the fold with this food-court counter. You’ll find tortas, huaraches, quesadillas, tamales, salad and soup, all of which counter most fast-food notions. But we’re biggest fans of the torta Cubana, and all of its smoked pork loin and applewood bacon glory. At $7 for a creative Loop lunch, don’t be surprised if lines rival Frontera Grill’s queues.
