60 Seconds of Culinary Wizardry at Chicago's EL Ideas

Chef Phillip Foss's fourteen-course meal in just 60 seconds.

"More than any other city," Eater's critic Ryan Sutton wrote recently, "Chicago is the heart of America's experimental dining movement." And at EL Ideas — that's EL as in the city's elevated public transportation system, not the Spanish word you might assume — chef Phillip Foss "produces intelligent, whimsically modernist food." Here, watch a dinner at the progressive restaurant in under one minute.
