Nick Kokonas Gets Bloody In Next: Chicago Steak Video

Mouths across Chicago and the nation started drooling when Next announced in November their future menu starting in January would be an inspired take on the classic Chicago steakhouse.

As is customary with the ever changing menus at Next a short film was created by Christian Seel to give diners a feel for what the restaurant is shooting for with the menu. This one shows Grant Achatz, Nick Kokonas, Dave Beran and company trafficking in the cliches of the steakhouse while Kokonas grabs a cleaver and swings away at some steak.
