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.

    It is the rare chef, for example, who can make ordering the “veggie plate” seem like a good idea in retrospect — but the one at Oscar’s was fantastic, with a great mix of colors and textures.
  •   CRACKING OUR HARD EXTERIORS  |  February 27, 2014
