Aviary Kitchen Table

Hi All!

I'm looking for feedback from anyone who's previously experienced the kitchen table at The Aviary.

My mom and I are heading down to Chicago for a long weekend over Easter, and we scored a reservation for the kitchen table at Aviary for our first night. We've previously dined at Alinea but besides that experience we really have no idea what to expect.

How generous are the food pairings? Our Aviary res is at 6PM, should we plan on eating dinner after or will we be too full/drunk?

How long should this experience take? My guess is at least two hours, but we really have no clue.

What are the chances (if any) of scoring a key to the Office for after our tasting? I'm hesitant to book a reservation for dinner after on the off chance we have the opportunity to check out the Office, although I know it's very exclusive and I'm not even sure that more drinking will be appropriate after the 10 cocktail tastings lol.

Thanks in advance for any input! :)
