Road to the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016: Grant Achatz – Alinea
Alinea, Chicago’s most acclaimed restaurant, has undergone a full-scale renovation, impacting on their setting, style, culinary vocabulary and imagery. As hard as it is to hold onto a unique persona within the upper echelons of the food world, chef Grant Achatz again highlights his status as maestro on the global food scene, making radical changes to the elements that made his three-Michelin-starred restaurant a gastronomy institution. The new Alinea is a discovery as much as a reassuring confirmation of its excellence. We had a chat with Achatz ahead of the 50 Best ceremony next week in NYC.
