The story of Uptown restaurant 42 grams, which went from an underground dining experience (Sous Rising) - to a brick-and-mortar storefront in the former Chester's Chicken location - to worldwide foodie fame and multiple awards for chef Jake Bickelhaupt - to its sudden and unexpected closure last June, is told in a documentary entitled (what else?) 42 grams.
It's been playing on the independent film festival circuit for a few months, and beginning Saturday it comes to the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. Co-owner Alexa Welsh will be there for a question-and-answer session after each Siskel screening:
- Saturday, January 27
- Sunday, January 28
- Wednesday, January 31
- Thursday, February 1
It's also available on all major On-Demand platforms including iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vimeo, and Vudu.
