Best New Restaurant Next

Any doubts that Grant Achatz and Dave Beran could follow up Alinea with anything comparable were silenced with the first ticket redeemed for Next. Creating an unforgettable restaurant is a feat in itself, but creating a succession of unforgettable restaurants within one space, swapping one out for another every three months, is downright ground-breaking. From the theater-inspired ticketing system, which books diners into tasting menus priced according to time and day, to meals paying homage to luminaries including Escoffier and El Bulli’s Ferran Adrià, Next has rewritten the restaurant experience—and you’re gobbling up every morsel. 953 W Fulton Mkt.
