If you want to snag a particular table at Alinea, the restaurant can honor your preference along with any other special requests. When it comes to seating, it’s important to note that the intimate Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant has only about 20 tables and its third floor doesn’t have an elevator. Ask to be seated on the ground floor if there’s someone in your party with any physical limitations.
Since Alinea serves a 22-course tasting menu, the staff will inquire about dietary restrictions and severe aversions to any particular food. If you have other special requests, the chef, sommelier and service staff will do their best to take those into account.
