Alinea, Chicago, Illinois

Illinois, United States, North America: A dish of hearts of palm at Alinea restaurant in Chicago, Illinois
1723 N. Halstead Street
Chicago , Illinois
Tel: 312 867 0110's insider take:

Rising star and culinary rocket scientist Grant Achatz (formerly of Trio and Napa's French Laundry) raises the bar on New American cooking at his techno-chic Lincoln Park restaurant. Foodies fly in from everywhere to sample his 12- and 24-course tasting menus; his plates have been known to include squab with huckleberries, sorrel, and peppercorns, and bison with Gruyère, pumpernickel, and wild leeks. Alinea, whose name comes from a typographical symbol meaning "the beginning of a new paragraph," may very well be the start of something new in exhibition cooking.

Open Wednesdays through Sundays 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
