2010_08_16_bayless.JPG World-renowned chef Rick Bayless is his expanding his restaurant empire and simultaneously taking aim at boring-as-hell airport fare like Cinnabon and Chilli's Too. The Top Chef Masters champ is opening two new locations at O'Hare Airport, it was announced today. The Chicago Department of Aviation said one location would be in Terminal 1 and the other in Terminal 3. Not a whole heck of a lot is known about the locations other than that they will open in "the fall" giving us more airport lines to wait in. But, hey, at least these will have good food at the end of them as opposed to, say, body scanners or McFlurries. Details about the specific menus are, we're sure, forthcoming.
