Next: Alinea 2005 – 2010

Next restaurant started its third menu of the year with a very ambitious representation of the dishes that Alinea was making from 2005 to 2010.

My first visit to Alinea was in 2009. I was particularly very exited for this menu as it gave me the opportunity to taste dishes that I only have read in books and no other restaurant could replicate. A few dishes transported me back in time while others made me realized (again) how far ahead Grant Achatz was at that time.

It is a unique menu. Once again Jenner Tomaska and team found a way to exceed the very high expectations they have created on themselves .
