A cryptic tweet from Grant Achatz popped up on our Twitter feed three minutes ago, and it's gotten the whole food world buzzing. "This should be fun! EMP+Alinea. NYC + Chicago. Friends, food, fun, freedom," Achatz wrote, hashtagging #21stCenturyLtd.

The video included shows the team over at Eleven Madison Park packing everything up in boxes labeled "Chicago," while Achatz's team at Alinea packs up their goodies in boxes labeled "New York," including their head chef. The two teams walk to their respective train stations (Grand Central, Union Station), and then what? It's all guesswork from here.

The project, called 21st Century Limited, references the 20th Century Limited train line, which ran between New York and Chicago. Perhaps this means the two restaurants will be picking up and switching places? In a 2011 interview with The Daily Meal, Achatz did mention high-end pop-up concepts.

"One of the things we’ve talked about is maybe Alinea ceases to exist in its current location. Maybe we just take it on the road. Make it [go] to Manhattan for a month, and then to LA for a month, and then to Miami for a month, and then to London, Paris, and Barcelona," Achatz said. "If you could make that work — and again, people have done pop-up restaurants and they’re great — but if you could make that work on another level, on a high level, that would be something."

Chicago Tribune reached out to Achatz's team, where Nick Kokonas and Achatz vaguely said, "We're excited to be working on a project with Will (Guidara), chef (Daniel) Humm and the entire team at EMP." According to an email from Kokonas, more information will be out next week. "At this time, we're letting the video speak for itself... keep an eye on our FB page," Kokonas wrote to us.

Meanwhile, Humm and co. are similarly tight-lipped, saying nothing except this: "We've spent the last two years thinking how we can collaborate with them. We respect them so much. We’re so happy we've finally found a way."

Chicago Tribune notes that Alinea’s ticketing system shows that the restaurant will be closed Oct. 10 to 14 for a private event. Perhaps it’s a sign to clear your calendars? Even better, the 21st Century Ltd Facebook page has this to share: "The 20th Century Limited ran between New York and Chicago in 16 hours... in comfort, luxury, and speed — spanning space and time. The 21st Century Limited will run a brief engagement between New York and Chicago in September and October of 2012."

In the meantime, keep your eyes and ears open for tidbits.


Alinea and Eleven Madison Park to swap places

Chicago's Alinea and New York's Eleven Madison Park, two of the nation's highly acclaimed restaurants, announced Tuesday they will be trading places for a week this fall.

Alinea and Eleven Madison Park, both holders of three Michelin stars, will trade chefs, kitchens and dining rooms, opening in essence pop-up restaurants in each other's space.

Alinea and chef Grant Achatz will be New York beginning Sept. 26 for five nights, and Eleven Madison Park, with chef Daniel Humm, will be in Chicago beginning Oct. 10.

In the most recent "World's 50 Best Restaurant" rankings, a survey of 800 international restaurateurs and food journalists, Eleven Madison Park was voted the 10th best restaurant in the world. Alinea was No. 7 in the rankings.

Achatz and partner Nick Kokonas have refused several offers to open an Alinea outside Chicago. The swap is a chance to present their cooking in New York without making a full-time commitment.

"I can't tell you how many chefs have said to me, 'Yeah, you're a big fish in a small pond. The only reason you're so popular is because you're in the Midwest.' In a way, we're amped up," Achatz told the Chicago Tribune. "I want to introduce Alinea food to the jaded New Yorker. We're going to show New Yorkers what Chicago food is all about."

The collaboration is being called "21st Century Limited," a reference to the "20th Century Limited," a luxury passenger train that ran between Chicago and New York during the last century.

The idea was born last November at The Aviary, the cocktail lounge owned by Achatz and Kokonas, which played host to Eleven Madison Park's cookbook party, according to Achatz. He said it was a handshake deal, with both knowing it will be a tremendous amount of work.

Three days before the Sept. 26 opening night, Achatz and chef de cuisine Matt Chasseur will fly a dozen staffers to New York, and in a 72-hour crash course, train the Eleven Madison Park staff to replicate Alinea. The process repeats when Humm, general manager Will Guidara and their team arrive in Chicago on Oct. 7.

Foodies will pay a high price for meals at the restaurants — $495 in both cities, not including tax and service.

Despite the expensive cover charge, both restaurants will lose money from the project.

"People sometimes don't understand why we're doing this when there isn't an economic benefit," Guidara said. "Sometimes we do what we do because we love doing it."
