Rising star and culinary rocket scientist Grant Achatz (formerly of Trio and Napa's French Laundry) raises the bar on New American cooking at his techno-chic Lincoln Park restaurant. Foodies fly in from everywhere to sample his 12- and 24-course tasting menus; his plates have been known to include squab with huckleberries, sorrel, and peppercorns, and bison with Gruyère, pumpernickel, and wild leeks.
