achatz profile pieces

Two massive profiles of Alinea's Grant Achatz, one in the Chicago Tribune that (finally) passes the torch to Achatz from Charlie Trotter, and one in the New York Times that compares Achatz to Michelangelo and his business partner Nick Kokonas to Medici. Sure, both pieces are full of hyperbole. But go eat at Alinea and tell me it isn't earned.
