Border Grill Las Vegas
Border Grill is the vibrant setting where Chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, Food Network’s “Too Hot Tamales”, present the bold foods and flavors of Mexico. With decor as wild and bright as a fiesta, the flagship Border Grill restaurant in Santa Monica is described as “a stylishly funky, pleasantly raucous place,” (Travel & Leisure), where Mary Sue and Susan have become two of Mexican food’s “pre-eminent American translators” (New York Newsday).
Ironically, it was in French restaurants where the chefs first tasted Latin foods. While guests were dining on brioche and escargot out front, in “the back of the house”, Mary Sue and Susan were discovering the home cooking of Oaxaca and the Yucatan at staff meals prepared by their fellow cooks from Mexico. Unlike anything they had ever tasted in Mexican restaurants in the United States, the authentic dishes were as varied and complex as the French fare the chefs were serving out front.
Looking back, Mary Sue and Susan’s success with Border Grill seems like it was a foregone conclusion, but as chefs, cookbook authors, and restaurateurs, they were truly risk-taking pioneers. Their first restaurants, City Café and then CITY (1981-1994), featured a menu of rustic, home cooking from all over the world, not the classical French fare of most celebrated chefs at the time. That tradition continued at Ciudad (1998-2010) with Latin food from the entire world. At CITY, Ciudad, and now at Border Grill, Mary Sue and Susan are unusually approachable, winning over a broad clientele not only with their cooking, but with their warmth and casual interaction. They swap recipes, answer cooking questions, and get guests to try something different. Natural teachers, they make the world of Mexican ingredients and authentic dishes completely fun and accessible.
