Chicago – 10/19/14 – Next Trio

This is definitely the menu I was most looking forward to this year. I remember late last year when the menus were announced I flipped back through ‘Life, on the Line’ to see if I could get an idea of what dishes would be on the menu. I didn’t really find much but an hour later was still engrossed in re-reading the book. I wish I had the opportunity to dine at Trio but had never even been to Chicago at the time. How times have certainly changed. Absolutely loved this dinner and it moves into my top 3 of Next menus. So very cool to see the origins of many Alinea dishes. Hoping to do it again before it ends!
