set-face-font's doc string says a nil or omitted FRAME argument "means
change face on all frames", which I guess means all existing frames but
not new frames.

set-default-font (aka set-frame-font) is similarly restricted, but it's
doc string at least points you in the right direction: frame-parameters.
So how about

(setq default-frame-alist
      (cons '(font . "-Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--15-140-75-75-C-90-ISO8859-1")
            default-frame-alist))
