You may recognize the name Rick Bayless from his long-running PBS show “Mexico-One Plate at a Time.” He has won countless awards over the years and owns a number of other Mexican-themed restaurants across the country.

In addition to sit-down dining, Frontera Cocina also features a walk up window where shoppers can snack on Guacamole and Chips, Tacos or sip on a signature margarita. Frontera Cocina has outdoor seating, so diners can enjoy the wonderful Disney Springs atmosphere while eating.

Here is a little more of a description of Frontera Cocina from the Disney Parks Blog:

Chef Bayless offers his award-winning taste of dishes such as Oaxacan Red Chile Chicken, Salsa Verde Shrimp Enchiladas Suizas and freshly made salsas and guacamole. There’s also a quick-service taco counter.

The lively new dining spot features warm colors and an open kitchen where Executive Chef Stephen Hicks leads the culinary team.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
