Alinea and licorice

tabicket | Feb 7, 2011 08:42 AM

Hi,
I have a reservation at Alinea in a couple of weeks. I have read that there are a number of licorice flavors used in the dishes there, and I don't like licorice. I am debating whether to ask them to omit any licorice or licorice flavors (annise or fennel) from my dishes. I am curious if there is anyone who does not like licorice and has eaten at Alinea. Is the flavor overwhelming, and did it make you dislike any dish with that flavor. I don't want to take away from the experience of the meal. I also don't want to dislike something when I could have asked to omit it.
Thanks for your help!
