We visited Next, the immensely popular Chicago restaurant created by Chef Grant Achatz, for the first time on a Thursday night in February. The 2012 James Beard Foundation "Best New Restaurant" winner features a new menu every four months based on changing themes. It is a multiple course tasting menu that may be paired with wine (3 tiers of selections)... More

We saw a last-minute Friday night reservation for Next’s Ancient Roman menu, so of course we had to jump on it. It was a fun evening with friends…the menu theme was clever, the presentation was beautiful, and the service was quite good. While I’ll definitely consider returning the next time the theme strikes my fancy, it was nowhere near the... More

Next is going to be one of the most interesting dining experiences you've ever had. Generally the food was excellent but there were a few small misses... I give Next 10 stars for making up for mistakes! The price is definitely high, we only purchased the meal no wine package... in my opinion the best way to go. Order one... More

This season menu is Ancient Rome. There were about 18 courses with all the theater that you come to expect from The Alinia Group. Each dish was excellent prepared well and served with clarity. We were fortunate to have the super premium wine list. A friend came with us from Italy who has worked in several vineyards and has a... More

As a twenty year veteran of the hospitality industry and as an executive chef of a restaurant in can guarantee you this was the real deal. We had the TFL tasting menu with standard wine pairing and we were absolutely blown away. Service and food were impeccable and this was fine dining personified. Months later I still cannot wrap my...

We love our Chicago restaurants and have been slowly tackling all of the Michelin starred-restaurants our city has to offer. When we saw that Next was doing French Laundry, it was the perfect opportunity for us to check Next out! You must remember that Next will completely change their menu every 3-4 months. Your experience this time will be completely... More

We went for the French Laundry dinner last night and I had no idea the food would be so amazing! Every course was a new surprise!

When I read that Next Restaurant was paying homage to Thomas Keller by hosting the October 1996 menu, that same day I booked a flight and hotel to Chicago to partake because I knew this was going to be an opportunity to try out a handful of the dishes within the French Laundry Cookbook. Seeing photos people were posting online,... More

Went in with no expectations. The flavors were OK but seemed dated. No explanation of the courses and the flavors combos which would have probably added to the overall sensory experience. Dangling flowers above was used in one of the dishes which didn't adds or detract from the flavors... So seemed more gimmicky. Save the time and money... And go... More

Next is a forward thinking restaurant that changes its menu theme every four months. This visit incorporated the original French Laundry Menu and accurately replicated those dishes throughout the evening. I only rated it four stars because the previous two nights we had dined at Grace and Alinea which made the 'dated" FL menu less than exciting. That being said,... More
