This was actually my first time to Alinea, and it didn’t disappoint.Alinea is currently ranked number 15 on the 50 Best Restaurants in the World list, and one of the two Michelin 3 star restaurants in Chicago, the other being Grace (we went there too!) and deservedly so.Chef Grant Achatz’s innovation completely comes out here to make a truly magical dinner experience.I was seated upstairs in a place aptly named “The Salon”, however when touring the restaurant, the downstairs looked equally amazing, fully equipped for larger parties, and housing the kitchen, which was an amazing sight to be seen all on it’s own. So sit back, enjoy some pictures of the experience, or jump into the fray and book your own. Cheers!
The night kicked off with some champagne, and some wine pairing choices, then it was off to the courses!
