    OMG. Best food and service in life. The mushroom jus from the first course in the Hunt, topped by the sturgeon and caviar, and the dessert Maris Otter were some of the best things I've ever tasted.

    On Next's new "Bistro" menu, the evening begins for all with an oeuf a la Beran, a solitary eggshell containing a lovely bit of egg custard, ground chicharrones and thyme-scented breadcrumbs. Read more

    Next does an outstanding job of immersing you into a culture through you senses. During my dining experience I could have closed my eyes and been in Barcelona. The food was rich with culture and flavo

    You need to buy a ticket on the website to get a table at chef Grant Achatz’s follow-up to foodie hot spot Alinea—and they go quickly. But if you manage to snag one, you’re in for a treat.

    The menu at this shape-shifting restaurant completely changes every four months. While it's not as cheap as it used to be, you can always be assured an incredible experience.

    From the theater-inspired ticketing system which books diners into tasting menus priced according to time, to meals inspired by Escoffier and Ferran Adrià, Next has rewritten the restaurant experience Read more

    Trying to write a tip for this place is challenging since it changes every 4 months. The last 4 months of the year are always reserved for the most elaborate of the year's menus.

    To dine at Next is not to experience a meal that reaches some objective standard of “greatness.” But it is a rareopportunity to submit oneself to a specific vision of what great dining might look like Read more

    Be sure to get your ticket early to dine here! If you miss out there's usually 1 or 2 on Facebook the night of but they do go fast!

    Ticketed, time-traveling concept from culinary tour de force Grant Achatz of Alinea. If you missed the first 1906 Paris menu, you're S.O.L. as the futuristic Thai menu is set to launch July 8.

    Sample world-class cuisine prepared in the style of pre-WWI Paris. Additionally, the restaurant sells its meals through tickets, which increase in price for busier time slots. Read more

    Lived up to the hype, and then some, with Paris 1906. Food magnificent. Does not have a wine list; sommeliers pour preselected wines or other beverages by the glass with each dish.

    If you like to take photos of your food, sit on the chair side, not the booth side. There's better lighting for non-flash photography.

    Plan far ahead for this tough ticket. Chef Grant Achatz's demiurgic menu centers around the concept of his "Childhood" for its quarterly iteration. A tabletop campfire burns as the courses arrive.
