Eater Interviews: Nick Kokonas

nick-kokonas-eater-national-interview-196.jpgEater National has a two-part interview series with Chicago chef Grant Achatz's business partner, Nick Kokonas: Part one covers Kokonas' work and the future of Alinea. The second includes a story on how Kokonas dealt with a exceptionally difficult table at Next: "I walked over and said...'It doesn't seem to be your type of place. What I'd like to do is end the meal right now, refund your money, and make you a reservation at any other place in this city. And I will pay for it just to get you out of here.' They were jaw-dropped." [-EN-]
