Careers One moment as we prepare to welcome you On May 4th, we opened the doors to Alinea. The culmination of years of dreaming and imagination, Alinea was a minimalist modern vision that put the focal point on the cuisine and dining as an experience.
What was modern design in when we began the project is unlikely to be cutting edge in And so just before our 10th anniversary we committed to completely redesign and rebuild Alinea. On January 4th of this year the demolition crew came through and the rebuild began shortly after. Crews worked continuously to do in 4 months what took 13 months the first time around. And we sent our team around the world in the process. The new design is an intentional juxtaposition of classical architectural references and modern touchstones.
It seeks to be timeless and sophisticated while giving no direct hints to a specific time or place. We also took the opportunity to improve the mechanicals, modernize the lighting systems, and install a five-zone sound system. So we are starting with a blank slate on the cuisine as well — and adding a few completely new experiences and choices for patrons.
Some people are calling this iteration Alinea 2. We just call it Alinea. Welcome back to Alinea. Alinea will offer three distinct experiences The Kitchen Table Our new kitchen table offers the most intimate, immersive and cutting edge experience at Alinea.

Achatz spent four years at The French Laundry, rising to the position of sous chef. Career[ edit ] In , Achatz moved to the Chicago area to become the Executive Chef at Trio in Evanston, Illinois , which at the time of his arrival had a four-star rating from the Mobil Travel Guide.
