Tonight I'll grill a dry spice/herb rubbed pork tenderloin with some wood chips in a smoker box. Oven roasted potatoes and cranberry relish for sides. I see a southern Rhone or two in my future...

It's a blustery day here, so I think some beef stew is in order. It sure is nice to be able to start cooking again! Banana

Alinea this past Saturday night. Standouts- hot potato/cold potato and black truffle explosion- game changers. But $500 all in with the basic wine pairing?? I still prefer a steakhouse with a single bad ass bottle of wine. Still glad to have tried it.

They must have raised their prices, or your table left an extraordinary tip. Last time I was there about 18 months ago the bill was just over $400 pp and that was the 25 course tasting with the reserve wine wine pairings.

Still ranks as the most creative meal I have ever experienced, hands down.

I would have expected it to be more. I thought prices were comparable to Per Se and Joel R. in Vegas. Alinea is not high on my list of must tries. I've become tired of that style of cooking for the most part.

Not a bad price at all, really.

EB, have you enjoyed white truffles in the past?

Alinea has changed to a ticketing system similar to Next. You pay for the experience, including service, prior to dining. This was $325 in our instance.

White truffle service offered for $150 per. Basic wine pairing $150 per and reserve $250...all inclusive of service.

wine+art- never white Frown

Forgot to mention the aged Pu-erh tea (25 year?) enjoyed following the meal- wow!
