Frontera Grill and Topolobampo to serve on Sunday and Monday during the NRA


This only happens once or twice a year: On Sunday May 18th and Monday May 19th, Frontera Grill and Topolobampo will open for dinner. Normally closed on those nights, we’re staying open to serve everybody coming into town for the National Restaurant Association Show. (Non-NRA folks are welcome to dine with us those nights, too!)

For reservations, call 312-661-1434, or make a reservation online: for Topolobampo, navigate to Open Table; for Frontera Grill, head to City Eats.

How to reserve a table—and find Rick—during the NRA show.


This weekend, the restaurant world descends on Chicago for the National Restaurant Association Show. And as in years past, we’ve expanded our hours to be ready: Both Frontera Grill and Topolobampo will be open for dinner on Sunday May 18th and Monday May 19. (To reserve a table for those nights, call us at 312-661-1434.)
