I will never forget my first time dining at the infamous Alinea Restaurant in Chicago. I never thought we would live in Chicago, way too cold for me, but we did and we ended up loving it (the City, not the Cold). We lived in Chicago for 3 years and it wasn’t until the latter half of the time did…

Finally got a reservation to this exceptional restaurant. Every course was delectable, but the Foie Gras was the best I’ve had anywhere.

Loved how the Chef put a lot of creativity and thought into the zero-proof drinks, each was distinct in taste and complimented the meal perfectly. It was difficult…

Dined at Chef’s counter tonight to see the action. We had the best hushpuppies ever and the duck with orange chips was superb.
