In the third installment of our exclusive video series "Finding Grace: The Making of a Restaurant," chronicling the creation of Michelin-starred chef (and former Alinea chef de cuisine) Curtis Duffy's highly anticipated Grace in Chicago, Duffy and GM Michael Muser take us through their thought process as they evaluate different kinds of tableware in search of the perfect place setting. The goal: a setting that's artful enough to enhance the most creative, cutting-edge dishes ... but also actually works for your customers when they're trying to eat and drink from it.
