What's happening with "Next" restaurant?

  • 1

Any local 'hounds hearing any news about when this venture will open?

I'm on the mailing list but haven't received any updates ... was supposed to open late 2010, then I read in Time magazine maybe Feb 2011 ... you local guys hearing anything?

For those who don't know what "Next" is, it's Alinea chef Grant Achatz's new restaurant ... http://www.nextrestaurant.com/

Here's the Time magazine article from Dec 2010, where the author got a preview of what's going to be served the first 3 months ... http://www.time.com/time/nation/artic...

1723 N Halsted St, Chicago, IL 60614

  1. A post I saw on another food board was from a friend of someone working on the space. Opening date to be around 2/15 but this "worker" thought that was "very optimistic".
    We all just have to wait. I'd tell you a secret I have on how to find out when they will open but then you would become one more person trying to get my reservation and that ain't gonna happen. :)
