I think you could just visit your local public library and check out whichever ATK season book has the recipe, and then cook it at home, write it down, scan it...
AFAIK all ATK recipes eventually appear in their cookbooks. I've got at least one of them and I'll buy more as soon as I've cooked an appreciable amount of those in my current ATK cookbook.
I think they've got a pretty good show, and I like their cookbooks. I'll admit their online site is a bit sucky.

I agree, home cooks can try, but rarely is a recipe exactly duplicated at home. We go to a favorite steak place for steak even tho' some pretty good steaks have come off my stove and/or grill.
If you can exactly duplicate a recipe from a commercial restaurant then you wonder what value they are adding, other than not needing to cook it yourself, and that's a value for probably 90% of everybody, or even to those of us who enjoy cooking.
Restaurants don't need to worry about amateur chefs such as ourselves. We home chefs are probably more likely to frequent restaurants than those who do not enjoy cooking. We are amateur chefs, but we are foodies even before that.
