Watch a Musical Mashup of the Eleven Madison Park-Alinea Restaurant Swap


If food is the new rock, this music video of last September’s Eleven Madison Park and Alinea Restaurant trade-off might be the perfect validation of the claim.

When the Michelin-starred spots switched places earlier this year, they garnered tremendous attention and continue to receive praise. Now, a video highlighting the triumphs and challenges of such a production has been released by the Alinea team. The clip feels reminiscent of Sin City and some early, albeit mouthwatering, seasons of The Real World.

Watch what happens when fine dining chefs and restaurateurs stop being polite.
