Alinea has received worldwide attention for its hypermodern, emotional approach to dining. With a staff fully dressed in Ermenegildo Zegna suits, each waiter guides their patrons through meals comprised of 12-24 tastes.
Many "courses," each consisting of a single, flavorful bite, are presented on serviceware tailored to a particular dish while in-the-know servers instruct you on how to consume each one, making this not only one of the best restaurants in Chicago, but also one of the most unique.
