The menu will change four times a year, with each new edition featuring the cuisine of a particular place and time. When the restaurant opens, Mr. Achatz said, the theme will be Paris in 1912, with painstakingly researched evocations of Escoffier-era cuisine. Three months later, the kitchen will turn out a fresh set of recipes — evoking, say, postwar Sicily, or Hong Kong 25 years from now, with modern techniques employed to imagine the future of Chinese cuisine.

Achatz is turning the traditional dining experience on its head by selling tickets to the restaurant in advance. Costs will vary based on the menu, day, and hour, ranging from $45 to $75, and will be all inclusive. A very democratic approach to fine dining.
Very much looking forward to my next trip to Chicago.
