So it looks like it's turning out to be Grant Achatz week on Eater Chicago, but with the launch of the Childhood menu at Next and now this new video, there's a lot to talk about.
Achatz and his team at Alinea have earned the position as best restaurant in North America for staying ahead of the curve and constantly being innovative. As a diner, when you sit down for that mutli-course meal, you want your mind blown. This new dessert, dubbed "chocolate, pumpkin pie," was inspired by the film The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover. Even as a mere viewer, you will have your mind blown. Just watch.
