Alinea Named 6th Best Resto in the World

Chicago restaurant moves up one place in rankings



    Grant Achatz is the creative culinary force behind Alinea.

    Chicago's well-regarded culinary scene gets another shot in the arm.

    Alinea was listed No. 6 in Restaurant magazine's annual "San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants." Alinea was the highest-ranked American restaurant on the list.

    Alinea, helmed by Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas, improved from its 7th place ranking last year.

    No. 1 on the list was Noma restaurant in Copenhagen.

    The next American restaurant named was New York's Per Se, which checked in at No. 10.

    Alinea (1723 N Halsted St) has been open since 2005, and Chef Achatz is known for his preparations and deconstructions of classic flavors.
