Hey - how come the Amateur Gourmet no longer carries your link and logo on his site?
And this was posted on ruhlman for god's sake! Didn't he see the date?!
A lot has happened in two weeks (good article reflecting impact of all our ranting about the treating animals humanely on food industry, nyt week in review), but the most startling may have been the press release that dropped into my email box just this morning announcing that Grant Achatz will close Alinea:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sunday, April 1, 2007
1723 N. Halsted Street
Chicago, IL 60614
(Chicago) – In a dramatic move, Chef Grant Achatz will be closing his restaurant, Alinea, on its two-year anniversary. Perhaps the most heralded restaurant in the country since its opening, Alinea will be closing after service on Saturday, May 6. Chef/owner Grant Achatz, widely considered the American leader in progressive cuisine, has decided to pursue his other passion, that of acting. The spark was reignited for Chef Achatz when he recently appeared on the mainstage of the world-renowned Steppenwolf theatre with acclaimed author Michael Ruhlman, as part of the theatre’s Traffic Series. “I hadn’t been on stage since my eighth grade production of Oklahoma and I forgot how it felt to express myself that way. I’m looking forward to the challenges of embarking on this new career,” states Achatz. Achatz has garnered worldwide recognition and acclaim for his Progressive American cuisine and hopes to reach that same level in the field of theatre arts.
Alinea serves progressive American cuisine Wednesday – Friday 5:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 5:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Jackets are recommended for gentlemen, and smoking is not permitted in the restaurant. Private dining is available for up to 14, valet parking is available and reservations are strongly recommended. For reservations or further information, please call 312.867.0110 or reference www.alinearestaurant.com. For media requests or more information, or to discuss the meaning of today’s date, please call Jenn Galdes at Grapevine PR, 773.588.2004.
