Alinea- Part One

Today is the day.

After 2 months of waiting, my reservation at Alinea has finally arrived. Named by Gourmet Magazine as the #1 Restaurant in 2006, Alinea is a combination of food, science, service and art. Chef Grant Achatz has been trained by some of the best, including Charlie Trotter and Thomas Keller. He's also dabbled in wine making where he learned the ins and outs at La Jota Vineyards. Not bad for a 32 year old.

To top it all off, Chef Achatz was diagnosed with cancer of the mouth in July of 2007 but after treatment his cancer is now in remission. He's won countless awards, including the 2003 "Rising Star Chef of the Year" Jame Beard award.

Look for pictures, tasting menu and much more tomorrow!
