Next Restaurant Restaurant Review

: To enjoy the privilege of visiting chef-restaurateur Grant Achatz’s Next Restaurant, diners must purchase advance tickets via its website, The cost varies by day of the week and whether or not you choose to dine during prime time hours. The menu is scheduled to change four times a year, and each time a new set of dishes is offered they will focus on a respective period and world locale, perhaps Hong Kong --- imagined in 2036 --- Tokyo's Edo period or a tour of Thailand. The price point is notably down-to-earth ($80 to $100 for six courses, with beverage pairings starting at $22 per person). Because the meal is paid for in advance, there’s no transaction to speak of at the restaurant proper.
