Chef Daniel Humm and GM Will Guidara like taking their show on the road. They visited Aviary for the Eleven Madison Park cookbook launch party, they swapped restaurants with Chef Grant Achatz for the 21st Century Limited, and this week, they’re on their way to San Francisco for a reception and book signing. And now, rumor has it Humm and Guidara could be headed back to Chicago for another Aviary event in a few weeks. Ahab speculates it may something to do with NoMad’s one year anniversary. Like Aviary, it also is a James Beard finalist for Outstanding Bar Program.
