So I made a rez at Alinea a few days ago and they informed me that beginning 8/1 they will no longer have the Tour and Tasting menus, but instead a 15-16 course menu at $185. I suppose this is to cut down on average dining times and turn over the tables more.
Now, I'm wondering if we should try for a table before then to get the 24-course Tour. Anybody think it doesn't matter and that new and greater things are in store, or would you go for the "more is better" philosophy and hit it sooner rather than later?
