Kith & Kin's chicken liver pate with cornichons, crostini and dijon mustard, one of Grant Achatz's favorite dishes.

Alinea's Grant Achatz yesterday listed his favorite places to eat when he isn't in the kitchen on Gridskipper. Achatz listed Kith & Kin, The Drawing Room, The Bristol, Schwa, and TAC Thai (where he recommended ordering off the second menu). "These are the places that I crave all week, and where you'll most likely find me come Monday," Achatz wrote.

Meanwhile, Achatz tweeted that his two upcoming projects, Next and the Aviary, will be side-by-side at 953-955 W. Fulton Market. That's right by Homaro Cantu's moto and otom and a couple blocks west of the Publican, which could make Fulton Market a Murderer's Row of good restaurants.
