The second Chicago restaurant of Grant Achatz’s culinary genius delivers an ever-changing menu; every few months Achatz completely reinvents the menu’s cuisine, jumping from different time periods and parts of the world. Unlike traditional restaurants, he doles out reservations in a unique ticket format, which adds to the feeling of occasion at this unique dining experience.

“I love going to Chicago and seeing what Grant [Achatz] is doing at Alinea and Next.” – Daniel Humm (Eleven Madison Park)
