Befriending Chefs/Restaurant Staff

Sooooo the new place I'm moving into is literally 2 doors down from Alinea and has a clear view into the restaurant's kitchen (they have big windows on the side). I couldn't be more excited about this and am wondering if/how I could potentially strike up a relationship with some of the chefs there. It's juvenile, I know, but I am such a fan of their "work" and would love to get to know them over the next few years! What would you do? Considering a "I LOVE ALINEA!" sign for the side of my new place (kidding, kidding). Ideas? :)
