Mexican-born chef Dudley Nieto is one of a handful of U.S.-based chefs dedicated to bringing authentic, flavorful Mexican food to the table, and his restaurants in Chicago and New York City attest to his dream. Nieto's latest project, Mezcalina, was named one of 23 "authentic Mexican restaurants" by the Mexican government last year. "To be recognized by my country, by my peers evokes every reason why I am a chef," he said. "Nothing could make me happier than knowing I am part of an industry that dignifies Mexican cuisine, art and culture."
