    Alinea chef/owner Grant Achatz was a guest on Oprah's show, talking about his battle with cancer that almost cost him a big portion of his tongue and jaw -- which would have been devastating to the man who's been called one of the most revolutionary chefs in the country.

    I have a feeling that Oprah's "favorite things" at this 4 star fine dining restaurant are well-known pastry chef Gale Gand's expertly prepared desserts.

    Saying Table Fifty-Two is an Oprah fave is a no-brainer -- chef and co-owner Art Smith was previously Oprah's personal chef, so obviously she's a big fan of his cooking. That cachet, along with Smith's deft handling of Southern cuisine and the mere 60-odd seats, means you'll have to scratch and claw for a reservation here.
