Or should I say Achatz v Jeter?? I recently booked my FIRST trip to Chicago and was able to score a reservation at Alinea. (Excited would be a huge understatement) However, I just realized that I may be there during the world series, a potential Yankee world series (go Cubs.. Yankees/day game @Wrigley/Alinea would be an AMAZING bday) soooo if (an if but not a huge if) my beloved Yankees are in the series, do I skip Alinea??? This could be a really tough call. (Does the Peninsula have in-room TiVo's??)
On a side note, I will be there for three nights and I'm leaning toward Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill for night one and Graham Elliot for my last night BUT Kahan's Blackbird is gaining steam on them. Any thoughts/recommendations?
