He had been named one of the best new chefs in America by "Food & Wine" in 2002, received the James Beard Foundation Rising Star Chef of the Year Award in 2003, and in 2005 he and Nick Kokonas opened the conceptually radical restaurant Alinea, which was named Best Restaurant in America by "Gourmet" magazine.
