Show 97, November 15, 2014: Susan Feniger, Border Grill and Mud Hen Tavern

Susan Feniger of Mud Hen TavernSusan Feniger is the co-executive chef and co-owner (along with long-time business partner Mary Sue Milliken) of the popular and critically acclaimed Border Grill restaurants and Truck serving modern Mexican food in Las Vegas, Santa Monica and Downtown Los Angeles. A second Border Grill location in Las Vegas (Mandalay Bay was the first) is newly opened at The Forum Shops at Caesars (also the home of the pioneering Spago Las Vegas.)

One of the already talked about attractions of the new Border Grill Las Vegas is the ceviche bar. “We’re excited to offer a variety of fresh, sustainable seafood from our new ceviche and oyster bar, inspired by the flavors from our first trip to Veracruz where we tasted the most incredible ceviche,” says Susan Feniger.

One of the great conveniences of this location (as pointed out by food journalist Brock Radke previously) at the North end of The Forum Shops (next to Joe’s Stone Crab) is valet parking right outside their entrance.

Away from the Border Grill empire Feniger is also the principal of Mud Hen Tavern in Los Angeles.

Susan and her business partner, Mary Sue Milliken, were early pioneers of Food Network with the long-running series, “Too Hot Tamales.” They have also authored five cookbooks including Cooking with Too Hot Tamales. Active members of the community, both play leading roles in Share Our Strength and the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

One of the most successful Border Grills is located in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Hotel on The Strip. It opened with the Hotel. There are strong rumors about a new Border Grill opening next year further north on The Strip.
