Alinea Waiting List...Chances of getting in? L2O Good back up plan?

It is so nice to read all of your opinions! This is great! I have to ask what are the best places for lunch and dinner that are not exorbitantly priced...because sadly I cannot eat at restaurants like L2O or Alinea every night lol....Anyone been to that bar/snacks on top of the Wit? Called the Roof I think...

I'm not so sure any other Chicago restaurant will be receiving three stars. Alinea not receiving three would come as a shock (and I have not even eaten there lol)...And if they do call me back with an available table, I am sure they will ask me that question then too @ChemWork. All this discussing Alinea has made me hope I get in even more lol

I think you are absolutely right about Alinea and three stars...from what I have heard it is in a league of its own. If I go I look forward to seeing if it beats out Daniel in NYC for me, and Joel Robuchon in Las Vegas. Another question for you though, I recently saw Achatz twittered that he kicked out some stages for being 19 and asking for alcohol, and when they were carded, he kicked them out. I am over 21, but some of my guest are 20. Is this typical of Alinea, Chicago fine restaurants, do ID people at this type of establishment? It made headlines that Achatz was on a warpath that week lol. So was this an isolated incident? Just curious because I know when I was under 21 and paid that much for a meal, I had better be able to pay for wine pairings also lol. Just wondering peoples opinions...

Wow...thank you all for your very specific information. It is so helpful to have other people's opinion. Hopefully, Alinea will have availability and I won't have to worry about lol. If anyone else wants to weigh in on the subject I'd love to hear it. Also, who in Chicago do you think will be getting the coveted three star michelin award?

Alinea Waiting List...Chances of getting in? L2O Good back up plan?

Hello, I have a question concerning the waiting list at Alinea. Currently, I am on the list for August 15 (sunday), and they said there were 6 total on the waiting list. What are my chances of getting in? Also, I made reservations at L2O in case they do not call, but there cancellation possibly says I have to call 72 Hours prior in order not to be charged $100 a person. Do you think Alinea will call before that if they do? And is L2O the correct back up? Thanks so much for your help!
