Last week I was able to get a reservation (i.e., purchase a ticket) at Alinea for September. Have a reservation for Goosefoot on the same weekend. Excited. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Be excited. Be very excited.

I agree (with what you said, and what was said about small plates where one thing is good and the rest is mediocre but by the time you realize what is good, you have already eaten your 1 bite of it). Luckily alinea was absolutely not this. It truly was fantastic. It wasn't like some "nice" restaurants where they are going to hit you with a bunch of fancy ingredients without any real purpose and you will be left wondering why your black truffle foie gras morel-stack is made from baller ingredients but kind of tastes like the stuff you get at your normal neighborhood eatery...at alinea it all tastes fantastic and they only use the fancy things where the fancy things are an actual improvement.

How soon can I go back?

I've not been to Alinea yet but that was the type of restaurant I had in mind when I first disagreed with someone above. Some restaurants really are worth the price; it's the pretenders that give the tasting menu thing a bad name. Best meal of my life is still the one at Robuchon's and it was I think 16 courses...in truffle season smile.gif

Isn't the 3-day weekend next week? For Memorial Day ? confused.gif

Oh, unless you're Canadian I guess. According to my calendar there is something called "Victoria day"

It must be refreshing and rewarding to have a long weekend after putting in that grueling 12.5 hour week.

Yes, this is our May holiday. Living in a border region is was always great to get two huge party weekends in a row. I really miss the boating scene on the Great Lakes. frown.gif

From what I've seen the few times I looked, most high-end eateries don't mesh with being vegetarian. I'm okay with that, since I think spending $200/head is ridiculous, even if most of that cost is wine.


Making me happy: < 24 hours am going on vacay for 2 weeks. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Pure Food and Wine is probably the best for raw food, vegetarian in NYC. Absurdly expensive for very cheap stuff, imo. Decent wine list though.
