Alinea & Eleven Madison Park Collaboration Planned

New, 13 comments

Earlier this afternoon the video "21st Century Ltd" popped up on the Alinea YouTube account, hinting at some sort of upcoming collaboration or staff swap between chef Grant Achatz's Chicago restaurant and chef Daniel Humm's Eleven Madison Park in New York City. Front- and back-of-the-house staff from both three-star Michelin restaurants are seen packing up glassware, dishware, kitchen supplies, and even chefs (Achatz and Alinea chef de cuisine Matt Chasseur are also put in boxes). Details are murky, but EMP's general manager Will Guidara told the Chicago Tribune: "We've spent the last two years thinking how we can collaborate with them. We respect them so much. We're so happy we've finally found a way." The 21st Century Line was a train that connected Chicago and NYC in the first part of the 20th Century. Word is this happening in October. Here's the video:
