The only thing that may be missing from Alinea’s cutting-edge molecular gastronomy feast is some wine to go along with it. If you crave vino with your meal, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant offers two wine-pairing options. The standard pairing costs $135 per person. The reserved pairing, which includes rare wines, will appeal to more discerning oenophiles and is $195 per person. Each wine pairing is created especially to match Alinea’s elaborate, ever-changing 22-course dinner menu. You’ll notice the featured wines can pick up a nuanced ingredient in one dish or downplay a strong flavor in another — enhancing Alinea’s playful, provocative course selections.
