I'm still figuring out what I want to do for a living. The current economic turmoil hasn't made things easier!

I think it's not so much an issue about "affording" to dine out as it is about priorities, and food for me is a high priority. So for example, next time, put down the Louboutins and go to Urasawa instead. ;)

Hi there, well I was in Chicago a couple of months ago (horrible timing..weather was bad bad bad!) but.. ALINEA made it all worth while.. I had the full tasting with the wine pairing.. did you get that too? It was heaven..and our servers were soo helpful. Looking at all your pictures made me hungry all over again... anyways, have you ever checked out a blog called the "hungry hedonist"? I don't think she has been updating it recently..but she had some amazing photos of places she tried... go check it out!

Glad to hear you had a good time at Alinea. Yes I had the wine pairing; it's really the way to go with wine, as given the multitude of flavors in the Tour, you'd be hard pressed to come up with a bottle that goes with everything.

I wasn't familiar with Hungry Hedonist. She has some nice reviews (including Alinea), but sorely needs to update--the last post was in July 2008!

The Vegas trip, and three other places will have to be dispensed with prior to Ludo Bites. Though the meal had its share of misses, overall I had a positive experience there, and I eagerly await Ludo's opening of his own restaurant.

Friday, February 12, 2010 1:35:00 AM  
Blogger Will said...

Well damn, kevin. You're breaking my heart, but I guess blindly asking a total stranger to visit to shaboo was is worth the time.

No one takes pictures like you do. You and your camera are made for the wallet abusing price of shaboo.

Eh, not that it matters. This space just doesn't fit the modern vegas clientele. In a year or two, this space will become the fanciest buffet in the history of western civilization.

Don't get me wrong, I love me some Guy Savoy and Joel's Atelier, but Masa's latest restaurant concept is about five years behind the curve....

Friday, February 12, 2010 5:39:00 AM  
Blogger kevinEats said...

It's not so much the price, but the experience that turns me off Shaboo. If I were to get a true Masa-esque experience there, then I would definitely consider the place. Going to Savoy or Robuchon would seem like a much better use of funds.

I've yet to see a positive review of either Bar Masa or Shaboo, so it'll be interesting to see what happens to the restaurant.

So are you saying that a 18/20 is too high or too low for Alinea? Note that French Laundry, Per Se, Joel Robuchon, and Citronelle have all got scores of 19/20.

Monday, October 11, 2010 8:00:00 PM

That's what I noticed! I was surprised Alinea didn't receive a 19/20 as well, since it's ranked as the "best restaurant" in the US on S. Pellegrino. Then again I haven't been to any of these restaurants, haha.

Tuesday, October 12, 2010 9:27:00 AM

It's probably because Alinea's style is a bit more unconventional than the others'. It'll be interesting to see if the restaurant gets 3 stars in the upcoming Michelin rating.

Kevin, I finally tried Joel Robuchon this past Monday. It was probably my best French Dinner ever. I was in Absolute Bliss. I of course had the 13 course Degustation Tasting Menu. They also started wine pairings for this menu at 3 denominations $295, $595, and $995 pp. Not sure if offered for other tasting menu's though. I got to meet the man, in fact heard another blogger say Chef would be in town from the 14-18 of Nov. and scheduled my dinner accordingly. Got a copy of menu with wine pairings signed by chef himself. And no, he cannot speak a word of English although he did have an interpreter. My meal alone was $880 incl. of tax & tip, probably my most expensive but delightful meal ever.

Great to hear that you enjoyed yourself at Robuchon--I need to get back there sometime. I'm surprised that they're offering wine pairings now. What did the $995 one comprise of to justify the cost? My first meal there was also my most expensive ever, at $775 (there was a $1100 Urasawa dinner, but I didn't pay for it).

I love your website and your reviews and have commented several times (albeit "anonymously" b/c I'm too lazy to create a profile).

Just a comment on website design: would you ever consider ditching the interactive map. It's so busy that it's almost unusable. I also think that, considering your creativity and thoughtfulness, that you could put a beautiful photo or graphic that that captures the essence of your website.

Just my 2 cents.

He loved Sashi & worked hard to open it but he got an awesome oppurtunity with famous restaurateur Stephen Starr (he has many restaurants in Philadelphia and Morimoto restaurants). The restaurant is in Bal Harbour Shops which is supposedly a world known high end mall. He thought it would be a great opportunity to start his own brand & open a restaurant in his name. The restaurant will be a lot different from Sashi. It will be more traditional Japanese.

I like your blog, I really do, but if you use the fucking word "vegetal" one more time I will stop reading. OK I'm being dramatic, but don't you get sick of typing the same words over and over to describe food? My other pet peeve words are "lactic," "tang,"and the phrase "lingered on the palate." Your descriptions are so heavy handed and repetitive half the time, and brilliant and illuminating the other half. Think about it this way; you don't always have to tell us point blank what it tastes like to provide a good description.
I will say this, though, you know how to eat, man. Sounds dumb, but not everyone knows how to eat properly, especially the when it comes to eating food of such a high level of quality.

It would be cool if you had an ever present side column of your top restaurants that you want to visit.

Can you really actually smell or tatse anything? Your nose is so far up all these asses. hinoki & the bird was dreadful. You clearly get off on trying to be the "first " to review places. Doesnt make u cool. Only rather pathetic. Get a life.

Regards from Finland, Europe. Even though we have over 5600 miles the distance between us, I am a big fan of your blog. Great blog, awesome pictures. I started with CUT [2] posting 2008 and since then been hooked. I have really enjoyed your postings. Still my favorites are the Urasawa's.

Great Work, Kevin. Your pictures and descriptions are terrific. Now we're off to Little Sister to try the ma la tartar! On that note, have you had Tony Xu's house-made Szechuan sausages at Chengdu Taste yet?

Best, Daniel.

Hi Kevin:

How on earth can you afford to eat at all these restaurants? Do they sponsor you or you part of the Berkshire Hathaway family? I'm confused....these are not all affordable venues for us common folks....

Best....
