Menu & Inspiration: Push IV

When I approached Chef Achatz to cook with us, his first question was, “What are we going to make?”

I hadn’t thought the whole thing through at all.

We discussed the idea of reproducing dishes from year one at Alinea and we both agreed that this was a natural and obvious choice… so, naturally, we decided to avoid that completely.  

We’ve learned that injecting familiarity is one of the best ways to explore new ideas.  We wanted to tug at heartstrings and work within a concept for which we all have a reference point.

For the Push Project IV we are excited to present…
