Chicago – The windy city





Text: Thomas Ruhl

 

PROLOGUE: A character was once used by typographers to separate ideas – paragraph. From this point onwards, a new idea begins. They called this character Alinea. THE WAY We leave downtown Chicago. Our destination is located a few miles before the massive towers, built closely together by humans, reaching towards the sky. These structures accommodate social communities, skyscrapers with square honeycombs, filled with worker bees and living chambers. As it is with insects, wars are waged against the neighbouring towers, a purely economic ecosystem, in pursuit of clients, and bringing about the opponent’s downfall. Our taxi traverses the streets of the “old” Chicago, lining which are one and two-storey houses. We stop in Halsted Street and stand in front of a building with a grey façade and large windows. The only indication is the lone house number beside the entrance, 1723. There are otherwise no signs, nothing. Those who come here, know where they are. This place is long since legendary. THE ALINEA A dark passage leads us inside. Red light strips evoke excitement and curiosity. It is early afternoon, still a long time to go before the service begins; however, the kitchen is already bustling with eagerness, just as expected. The guests are given a peek into the kitchen before they are led down-stairs or into the dining area upstairs. Grant Achatz potter around among the crowd. He appears reserved, almost a little shy. None of his gestures convey a sense of vanity; there was nothing to suggest that one of the most famous avant-garde chefs in the world is nimbly arranging sample plates. We find out later that he is preparing a new course. In the evening, we will be the first people who may taste it. For this dish, he tested countless tomato varieties. After a friendly greeting and a short discussion about this photo session, he turns his attention again to developing his work. Mike Bagale, the executive chef, produces the dishes for his photo session, yet Grant constantly takes part in the happenings in order to lend a hand and to supervise the process. There is no doubt that the people here are highly media-savvy. Like the cogs of a Swiss precision watch, everything works as one collective unit. The waiting staff arrive in the course of the photo shoot, a massive brigade, that completely fills a large dining room during the daily briefing...(weiterlesen im Magazin)
