Grant Achatz and the ultra creative team at NEXT, an ever evolving restaurant whose menu and style changes around every three months, will present a unique World’s 50 Best Restaurants themed dinner on August 23 - December 31.
The dinner will feature a collection of famous dishes from some of the biggest names on the World’s 50 Best Restaurant list: Daniel Humm, Dan Barber, Virgilio Martinez, Massimo Bottura, Gaggan Anand and Andre Chiang - to name just a few.
18 chefs in total will be part of the collaboration, although they won’t actually cook at NEXT they will send exact recipes so Achatz and crew can recreate and produce a menu that will essentially invite diners to travel the world through their tongue.
Achatz and the NEXT crew have riffed on a number of exciting themes in the past, from Ancient Rome to an all vegan inspired menu, a Chicago steakhouse offering to a full on elBulli homage. The 50 Best idea is the first time the team have tried to produce a menu combining so many contrasting styles, ingredients and techniques.
This is sure to be one of the most exciting dinners of 2017. Below is a list of the chefs taking part in the unique offering.
