We have served elaborate dinners in the Swedish Embassy in Washington DC, in galleries in NY and LA, and in the streets of Chicago.We have temporarily moved Alinea’s entire operations to Madrid and Miami. We have held cocktail parties for Instagram, after-parties for major musicians, and so much more. Our thoughts on the guest experience and cuisine are simple: Make it Fun and Delicious. Implementing that goal requires imagination, hard work, and a dedicated team of nearly 200 people.
