Video: A Preview Of The Bocuse D'Or Menu At Chicago's Next, With Dramatic Music

Last Thursday, Grant Achatz tweeted to announce the first "friends and family" service for the latest iteration of Next, his quarterly switching dinner series in Chicago. Traditionally, friends and family has preceded regular service by a day to a week — so everybody knew things were getting pretty close. And this morning, the famously theatrical chef released a YouTube preview of the menu, which is based on the Bocuse D'Or cooking competition. And as it turns out, the meal promises to look strikingly similar to this. The Bocuse D'or menu will run until December and begins imminently. For tickets (Achatz parlance for a reservation), visit the Next website.
