Watch an Alinea Clip From the Film Spinning Plates

Here's a clip of Chicago chef Grant Achatz from the upcoming film Spinning Plates, directed by Joseph Levy. Spinning Plates focuses on three restaurants: according to the official summary, they are "a 150-year-old family restaurant still standing only because of the unbreakable bond with its community; a fledgling Mexican restaurant whose owners are putting everything they have on the line just to make enough to survive and provide for their young daughter," and Achatz's Alinea in Chicago. In the clip, Achatz discusses why he attempts impossible tasks: "Because I know that nobody else out there is going to do it." Spinning Plates premieres at the Austin Film Festival on October 19.
