From Next restaurant’s chef Grant Achatz, chef David Beran, and Nick Kokonas comes Paris: 1906. A complete, uncompromising guide to reproducing the 4-star opening menu of the most talked about restaurant in the country.
Next is a restaurant like no other. Every season the menu and service explore an entirely different cuisine. Buying a ticket is the only way to get in… and the entire season sold out in a few hours. The inaugural menu took diners back to Paris: 1906, Escoffier at the Ritz for a multi-course prix fixe dinner that was described by the New York Times as “Belle Epoque dishes largely unseen on American tables for generations.”
Chef Grant Achatz has been named Outstanding Chef in the United States by the James Beard Foundation and listed by Time Magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2011. Grant and Nick opened Alinea restaurant in 2005. Alinea has been recognized as the Best Restaurant in the United States by both Gourmet Magazine and The San Pellegrino 50 Best Restaurants in the World awards, and was awarded the highest rating of 3 stars by the Michelin Guide, among many other honors.
