Few restaurants can claim the highly coveted 3 Michelin stars that are the true mark of expert culinary craftsmanship. Alinea is a restaurant that not only is one of the few restaurants to receive such high accolades but one of few in the entire U.S.
What makes Alinea so special?
Well, inside the extensive 20-course meal that is provided lies a deeper meaning. The chef’s expression of himself oozes through into every dish and ultimately into each one of our pallets. Success for the Alinea head chef Grant Achatz lies in not only delicious food but “I want costumers to feel like they know me, the chef, after they eat my foo?d”.
How can food allow someone to get to know someone we have never met The same way we can feel connected to an artist through a piece of art. However, with food, we have more sensations to play that make for a much deeper experience. And let’s just say the food can really speak for itself.
At a price not to be scoffed at, $210-$265 per person, Alinea is said to definitely be worth the money. So bring a camera to document your culinary adventure and enjoy something completely unique. Get to know your chef through the intimacy of food that has been thoroughly prepared by hand and the aid of modern science.
