Alinea: Visually, far less than 7.5 hours, and free

Alinea is everywhere. Widely proclaimed to be one of the most innovative and best restaurants to come along in quite some time, Alinea serves up fare like you have never seen before. And they do so with a hefty side of bravado; the 28 course “Tour” takes about 7.5 hours to enjoy and will set you back a pretty chunk of change.

Don’t have the time or paper for that? Head over to eGullet, where one very meticulous member has posted a full review of the dining experience, complete with pictures of each course on the Tour.

    I’m very curious about Alinia. The 5-7 hour tasting marathon is ridiculous. And yet I wouldn’t mind trying to prove myself equal to the challenge.

    that looks really intimidating, as dining experiences go.

    those photos he took are gorgeous. i’m kinda surprised they let him photograph everything.

    Maybe it’s just me, but it seems to be a sad commentary when the bacchanalian excess of Alinea’s 7 and a half hour, 28-course course gorgeathon gets more attention/discussion than Jennifer’s post regarding those right here in Chicago that would be happy to get a one course meal:
