Photos of the new fall menu at Alinea in Chicago, helmed by chef Grant Achatz. Looks weird, decadent, and delicious. (via afb)
actually looks like they are trying too hard
now i’m really bummed. a couple of friends of mine are involved in alinea, and i had a chance to go when i was in chicago last june. but we couldn’t because of kids with ear infections. damn you, ear infections!
You know, I hate to be a yokel, but how is “Alinea” pronouced?
It’s all so foamy.
Well, I’m no expert on the acutal restaurant, but alinea is a word in French (which I speak) which is pronounced: ah-lee-nay-ah.
Photos of the new spring menu will be taken by electron microscope!
it’s pronounced ah-LIN-ee-uh. at least that’s how they say it when they answer the phone..
The disparity between the rich and the poor in this country is a hell of a thing. A hell of a thing.
Made reservations for the wrong week last time when I was in the Chicago area. Regretted it ever since. Sigh.
From a friend: “One of those photos looks like it has two gonads sitting on the plate, one standing up, the other on its side! America, as a culture or culinary civilization has come to the edge and we are poised to jump the shark!”
Give me a break.
Is that food?
why not ?
what kind of leaves do you burn?
