What a Week for Grant Achatz and Alinea

Chef Achatz gets listed in the Time 100.

Alinea moves up the Pellegrino 50 Best Restaurants list.  They're #6 in the world, #1 in North America. 

Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of people.  Really and truly.

As for me, I'm cooking this weekend.  The mushroom lady at the farmer's market had fresh porcinis (she only has 'em once a year), so look for a new post soon.

Congrats to Alinea.

Porcini mushrooms might be enough reason to move to Italy!

The French Laundry didn't make the list this year. :-(

This good news is only fueling my excitement... I still have over a month until my reservation for dinner at Alinea. It will be my first time, and I cannot wait!

Kudos to a Alinea and Chef A.

I'm happy to see Per Se at #10 world / #2 US.

Way to go, Alinea! I'm still trying to get there for dinner. One day. My son just informed me he scored tickets to Next. I'm so jealous.
