Northwestern to open first Frontera concept on campus

Concept part of new retail line-up at university center.

Sept. 12—The retail locations at Northwestern University's Norris University Center are in a period of transition after years of negative feedback from students. The star of the new lineup is Frontera Fresco, the quick-service branch of Chicago chef Rick Bayless' famous Frontera Grill, which will open its first location on a college campus when it moves in to Norris next month.

Frontera Fresco will replace Sbarro, Crepe Bistro and Jamba Juice on the center's ground floor. NUSushi will move in to the Paws 'n Go C-Store along with North Shore Pizza Company, another new addition to Norris' dining lineup.
