Well I think we tried to set the bar...on the high side. It was my wife's 41st birthday - we had a very difficult previous 12 months and were unable to really celebrate her 40th bday the right way. So I made a reservation at Alinea in Chicago. Needless to say 20 plus courses and wine pairings from the reserve selection resulted in a tab for 2 at $1,200. Best meal ever. I have a copy of the menu and cc receipt just waiting to be framed.
