There were 25 courses for dinner at Alinea (5 stars of course)... but one course required us to hold on to the bowl and I couldn't take a picture of it. The food was delicious and a once in a life time culinary experience. Service was excellent and not pretentious. In fact, the staff there were mostly under 27... anyway, back to the food. There were a few dishes I thought was a bit too salty, but the overall balance was great and each dish had a specific theme to it. The best was Apple, Duck, and Caramel. Like I said, once in a life time... aka until my next bonus! Highly recommended; it'll take a big hit on your wallet, but it's well worth it!
