Grant Achatz is a true champion, kicking his cancer and all the while never letting Alinea's standards slip. This, his Lincoln Park tower of strength, has grown into one of the world's top culinary destinations. If you want to see what all the fuss is over molecular gastronomy, forget Spain—Lincoln Park is the place. And there is much to fuss about. Achatz re-imagines the familiar while keeping true flavors paramount, and offers an ethereal design experience in which to enjoy his musings.
