A joint Trib interview with chefs Grant Achatz and molecular gastronomy legend Ferran Adria revealed that starting in January, Next will be serving a twenty-course menu that pays homage to Adria's (now-closed) restaurant El Bulli. Additionally, The Aviary will also be serving Adria-inspired cocktails and snacks.
