SPINNING PLATES is a feature documentary film about three restaurants, extraordinary for what they are today as well as for the challenges they have overcome: a cutting-edge restaurant named the seventh best in the world whose chef must battle a life-threatening obstacle to pursue his passion; a 150-year-old family restaurant still standing only because of the unbreakable bond with its community; and a fledgling Mexican restaurant whose owners are putting everything they have on the line just to make enough to survive and provide for their young daughter. This film features renowned chefs Grant Achatz of Chicago’s Alinea and Thomas Keller of California’s The French Laundry.
