Chicago chef Grant Achatz wants to know - is Aziz Ansari making fun of him?

Achatz tweeted Ansari Friday afternoon referencing a Parks and Recreation segment dedicated to "moleculor mixology." Or, as Ron Swanson calls it minutes before a bartender rubs his hand with whiskey-infused lotion, "the wrong way to consume alcohol."

Achatz, one of the leaders in the moleculor gastronomy movement, is behind Chicago restaurants Ailnea and Next and bars The Aviary, described as "a cocktail bar, redefined," and The Office, a VIP speakeasy.

"The Aviary is where cocktails and service are given the same attention to detail as a four-star restaurant; where bartenders are trained as chefs; where the produce and herbs are carefully sourced and procured fresh daily; where the name and branding of the spirit mixed is less important than its actual flavor; where drinks are made quickly and consistently in a state-of-the-art drink kitchen; where innovation and tradition are both honored," reads a description on the bar's website.

Judge for yourself if Ron Swanson would like it.
