Two ‘Game of Thrones’ stars visited Alinea over the weekend and were served a course on a replica sword

Grant Achatz, the chef and co-owner of the restaurant, is such a fan of the show that his staff had given him the sword as a holiday gift one year.

“Game of Thrones” stars Kit Harington and Gwendoline Christie stopped by Alinea Friday night for a meal fit for a king and queen, including a course served atop a replica “Longclaw” sword from the award-winning series.

Grant Achatz, the chef and co-owner of the restaurant, is a fan of the show, and his staff had previously given him the sword as a holiday gift.

“Myself, like everyone else in the world, loved @gameofthrones and would use story lines or show quotes during preservice meetings as analogies to service issues for inspiration or problem solving,” Achatz wrote on Instagram.

So when two stars of the HBO series appeared in his restaurant, he knew it was the right time to break out the replica “Longclaw,” which fans will remember as a gift to Jon Snow from his mentor, Joer Mormont, in season one.

“When I got it I told them someday we will serve a course on this sword. Last night we had the perfect opportunity! Frozen aerated Meyer lemon on a nitro frozen Long Claw served to #kitharington and @gwendolineuniverse,” he wrote.

Achatz’s post includes a video of him carrying the frozen “Longclaw” course out of his kitchen, a photo of the chef and Harington posing together, and a photo of the sword signed by Harington.
