Rick Bayless is such a famous Chicago chef that he has his own urban legends: When Rick Bayless chops onions the onions cry. Rick Bayless can put a kitchen fire out with gasoline. If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken, but Rick Bayless says it’s beef, then it’s beef. You get the point. Topolobampo is Rick’s Mexican restaurant in River North that serves three different seasonal tasting menus (starting at $95 and going to $140), and the food is so good, it will remind you why he has his own holiday - OK, we made that up.
