We currently see at least one $185 table for two available, though most tickets at the Chicago restaurant are $210-$265. As always, we rate the avant-garde Alinea (by Grant Achatz & Nick Kokonas) a STRONG BUY. Tickets are not inclusive of 11.5% tax or 20% service fee. Beverage pairings, which generally start at $165 or so, are purchased at the restaurant.
See our previous coverage of Alinea’s “dynamic pricing” & ticketing system, as well as Ryan Sutton’s review of the three Michelin-starred restaurant for Bloomberg. (First Published: 5:24pm, 12 September 2012, updated at 5:31pm.).
