But the frontier, as it civilized, was no place for vegetarians either. It was, however, an unpredictable amalgam of just the ethnicities represented on Frontier's new menu — Asian, Mexican, and the remnants of the original French settlers. While Frontier's staff is less diverse, they exude a crunchy-relaxed vibe that preserves the spirit of the place, even as they dabble in finer cuisine. The new Frontier offers a dining experience that lives up to the grandeur of its surroundings, and still is true to its slightly scrappier origins.
