The wife and I are taking the plunge and heading to Alinea on Friday night as our Christmas present to each other. My question is, neither of us is big wine drinkers...while we both enjoy the occasional glass, that's just it...we usually stop at one glass, two tops. So I don't really want to spend the money on the wine pairings and I'm thinking that even splitting a pairing might be a too much.
Do they have other options? Wine by the glass/half bottle? Can they just pour us a few glasses as needed and charge us based on how much we end up drinking? And if anyone has done any of those options, do you know the price range?
Thanks so much in advance. I'm really looking forward to this.
