Rick Bayless Opening Xipe in Mexico

Rick-Bayless-sm.jpgWell, it looks like the mother ship is heading home: Rick Bayless will open a restaurant in Mexico. The celeb chef announced via Twitter that he'll open Xipe in Mexico City's Colonia Condesa neighborhood, nicknamed Condechi, which has long attracted globetrotting hipsters. The restaurant will open in 2012 and, as Bayless said, "2 bring tru flavors of Mx food to Mexico." Because Mexican cuisine there has clearly suffered from being bland all these years. [OC Weekly]
UPDATE: Whoops, looks like we got duped. Should have checked the date of that story (April 1) when we saw it on our RSS feed.
