The Miracle Worker: Chicago Chef Grant Achatz -- Printout -- TIME
"If most chefs are musicians — soul, rock-'n'-roll or punk — Achatz is a poet. Nearly all his dishes are so precise and delicate, they are plated with tweezers. Although the food is delicious, it's also embarrassing, like someone's revealing too much to a stranger. It forces you to think about every bite. It's anti — comfort food. It's also the kind of food that pisses people off. Even though it can take months to get a reservation, even though the basic prix fixe meal is $195 before drinks, tax and tip, and even though Alinea has won every conceivable award (Gourmet magazine's best restaurant in America, the continent's highest entry on S. Pellegrino's list of best restaurants in the world and, most recently, three stars from Michelin), some people still walk out midmeal. "It's so hypocritical," says Achatz (whose name rhymes with rackets). "People will be carrying around iPhones, but they won't accept change in other mediums like food and art and music."
