Watch Animated Grant Achatz in Next's New 'Bistro' Menu Trailer

The menu runs from January 9 through May 10.

The team over at Next in Chicago have released a trailer for their upcoming Bistro menu. In the past, the videos have ranged from the kooky to the dramatic, but this one is just downright charming. The adorable cartoon is set to Parisian music and even features animated versions of chef Grant Achatz and restaurateur Nick Kokonas. There are croissants and baguettes and what looks to be a cassoulet.

The video also places an emphasis on daily chalkboard menus because the restaurant will feature an "evolving 5-7 course chalkboard menu" for the next four months. According to the restaurant, the Bistro menu draws inspiration from the dining culture of Paris post the great flood of 1910 where "Parisians once again remembered the Bistro." The menu runs from January 9 to May 10 and tickets are on sale now.
