We ate at Alinea last weekend (our first time). The restaurant itself is "interesting", the help is rather snooty and all in all the food was fun. I am a bit surprised that they have been open since 2005 and that there are people that really think is an amazing culinary experience???
All that said the food was fun but the part that was completely underwhelming was the wine pairing. We have been all over the world and have done lots and lots of pairings and they really missed the mark. Overall the wines were "average at best": and many were not paired well with the food.
It was an experience for sure but we will not be headed back or recommending it
