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.

  •   CRACKING OUR HARD EXTERIORS  |  February 27, 2014
    These days it is mollusks like oysters, mussels, and clams (rather than crustaceous shellfish, like lobster, crab, and shrimp) that best represent our collective emotional temperament. 
  •   THE SPICE OF LIFE (AND DEATH)  |  February 12, 2014
    In our reverence for herbs and spices  we should detect our contempt for the blander staple ingredients they are often meant to enliven.
