Yes this was one of the best meals I have ever had and one of the most expensive. It's not cheap but if you are looking for a special place for a special occasion it is well worth every dollar.

Normally these type of places do not appeal to me. However, I have been dying to eat since 2013 and finally got back to Chicago to do some shopping and the meal of my life. Every course was an experience and not just something to...More

Alinea. The most incredible dining experience I have ever had, shared in the great company of like-minded yet slightly insane colleagues and foodies who enjoyed this delectable 3-Michelin star dining experience with me in one of the world's best restaurants.
