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.

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!"
