Graham Elliot’s newest restaurant concept, g.e.b., opens in the Chicago loop next week, and while rumors and his reputation had us expecting a rock-and-roll venue of sorts, it seems like Elliot and company are also going the more religious route.

"It’s become rather church-y," Merlin Verrier, Elliot’s partner-in-crime, told us over the phone. "We bought some pews from a church and then had them reupholstered and fit into our banquets."

Then there are Catholic Saint candles, outfitted with the faces of prominent chefs and Chicago personalities, plus confessional mesh screening partitioning the restaurant.

"The two aligining themes would be church and rock for sure," Verrier said, which fits perfectly into his philosophy that music is religion. ("Pretty much every single culture that humans have there’s always some sort of musical aspect to it, and it’s usually around ceremonial religion," he explains).

As for food, Elliot’s g.e.b. will balance the Michelin-starred food of his eponymous restaurant and the low-scale fast-casual Grahamwich. Each plate is composed of three ingredients, all priced at less than $20.

There’s buttermilk, chicken, and tarragon, plus oxtail, lasagna, and ratatouille, not to mention shrimp, avocado, and yucca for starters. For dessert? Poundcake with strawberries and rhubarb, or beignets with gianduja and sugar. All this to a constant stream of mostly 70s and 80s punk pop rock, chosen from a vinyl collection of more than 70 records (diners themselves can pick and choose the music, from Van Halen records to Guns N' Roses).

Check out the brunch/lunch and dinner menus (all attached to an individual vinyl record) below.

Update: A Graham Elliot representative tells us that the g.e.b. opening has been pushed back from June 1 to a vague opening slated for the first week of June.


Graham Elliot Loses Nearly 150 Pounds &mdash See His Amazing Transformation

Meet the incredible shrinking Graham Elliot!

Nine months after undergoing a sleeve gastrectomy at the University of Chicago Medical Center, the MasterChef judge and acclaimed chef has lost a whopping 147 lbs. “I thought it would take two or three years to do this,” admits Elliot, 37, who now weighs 253 lbs. after tipping the scales at nearly 400 lbs. at one point. “I thought I𠆝 lose 60 or 70 pounds the first year.”

Elliot credits his success to thinking about the surgery as just a stepping stone to making serious healthy lifestyle changes. He works out at least every other day now, can run 5 miles and requests that his dressing room on the MasterChef set is filled with almonds, dried fruit and seaweed chips instead of the usual sweets.

“In the past I would get stressed and ask craft services for cookies and candy,” says Elliot, who is currently in Los Angeles filming the upcoming season of the hit cooking competition show. 𠇋ut now I know my stomach is the size of a banana and I need to have food that just gives me energy. So I can either have a moment of sweetness but feel really bad or I can order something delicious and light like sashimi.”

The perks of his healthy transformation include wearing the same size jeans he did during his freshmen year in high school (that’s a size 36!), finally flying without wearing a seatbelt extender and losing the sleep apnea machine he’s had to use since 2005. “That’s life-changing,” he tells PEOPLE. “It was like being chained to the bed — not being able to lean over and hug [my wife] Allie or snuggle with my kids [Mylo, 7, Conrad, 3, and Jedidiah, 18 months] — because I have a huge mask on my face. Once my machine broke and I had to stay up for 48 hours because I physically couldn’t sleep for five minutes without gasping for air.”

Elliot believes his personality has changed too. “I’m more assertive but in a positive way,” explains the chef, who recently opened his newest restaurant Primary Food & Drink in Greenwich, Conn. “I’m still the comedian but in meetings I’m a little more in command and not afraid that if I say something wrong, someone is going to call me fat. And really that’s what has taken control of my life since high school.”

But no question, making his three boys proud is the absolute best benefit. 𠇊t my son Mylo’s birthday in January, we were all running around playing tag with his friends,” recalls Elliot. “He was telling them, ‘My Dad is the fastest one here. He can beat us in a race.’ That was awesome!”
