FOR GRACE follows Chef Curtis Duffy on his journey toward building Grace, his dream restaurant in Chicago. As a teenager, Duffy was troubled and distracted and it wasn’t until a home economics teacher recognized his natural talent that he discovered his place in the kitchen. After an unimaginable tragedy involving his parents, Duffy dove headfirst into his career and quickly became one of the country’s most renowned chefs. As development began on Grace, Duffy found himself at another point of personal crisis: his laser focus cost him his marriage and two young daughters.
FOR GRACE takes us behind the food and delves deeply into the events, experiences, and people that made Curtis Duffy who he is. It is a documentary about family, sacrifice, and the journey from tragedy to opening night at one of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants.
