You can also get food coated in gold leaf, but it's not like rich people who care about fine food are into that either.

This is for rich idiots who want to show off how rich they are, people who want to save up to eat at the crazy place, and generating outragged articles and links as a form of free publicity.

Protip: every single anon on this board has in their possession: hard drives full of- American movies, music & porn.

Not to mention the fashion fashion trends they follow. Also being on 4chan is pretty American.

I watched the whole five minutes just confused and a bit angry. I thought this was the most ridiculous display of food I had ever seen. I expected them to take the chocolate away when they lifted it, wondering what the point of it was, and then... That's where I lost it. It became a weird piece of performance art when they smashed it and I laughed uncontrollably for about 3 minutes. They could have done that at any point, or even delivered it to the table like that.

The haters have obviously not eaten at a high end restaurant before. Food is art. That's why menus are done is such a way to be appealing to the eye. Chances are, if the dish looks beautiful then it probably will taste just as beautiful. An ugly and ill prepared dish is unappetizing and then it becomes difficult to get past that to attempt to eat it. It has nothing to do with pretentiousness. I love a well prepared burger from In N Out Burger as well as high end food sculptures.

Michelin stars are for chefs what oscars are for actors, or a high zagat rating for a fast food joint. At restaurants such as Alinea, you aren't just paying for some guy in a jumpsuit cooking you a meal...you are paying to enjoy a culinary experience from a highly trained and qualified chef who has spent years studying and honing his craft.

You wouldn't use the cheapest backyard mechanic to work on your nicest vehicle, you'd take it to a reputable and trustworthy mechanic and if the job requires it, a mechanic that specializes in the car you have. You want quality work. That reputable mechanic spent years honing his craft to build a reputation. Same is true with restaurants like this. The chef, if he cares about his craft, desires a good reputation. Culinary art, if done well, is a wonderful experience. Can I afford this kind of lifestyle? No, but I have eaten at a few high-end restaurants and it is absolutely a fantastic and fun experience.

One last note, Grant (the head chef and owner of Alinea) is relatively young (just about 40 years of age) and likes playful dishes. I attribute this dessert to childhood when playing in the mud and making mud pies and such. It's cool. Those that scoff, no offense, just simply don't get it or think it's frivolous. That's fine, everyone has an opinion. I just fail to see how one can have a good, solid opinion about something they haven't experienced before.
>>
>>7131636
The current majority of /ck/ are 20something young white males who are inevitably too poor to afford to even dream of eating at such a place. It stinks of sour grapes whenever anyone tries to have a thread where the topic is a meal that costs over $50.

Take a look at the catalog, it's all fast food and youtube chefs. That speaks volumes to the type of people posting here. It's a shame because I genuinely enjoy fine dining and discussing it.

>Food is art.
In your warped little mind
>>
>>7131702

a lot of people complain about stuffs like these. sure it may look pretentious or its a waste or put it on a plate etc, but you're forgetting one thing, this is ART. the more famous the restaurant is, the more emphasis they give to the presentation. culinary arts is making art out of food. you enjoy the art, you enjoy the food. if a painter wants to paint on a wall, let him be. hes doesnt want to use a canvass or paper. everything on the menu has its story/inspiration just like every work of art.

and I don't get why people think this is lame. i guess they just aren't into culinary like i am. i've read Achatz book and he's by far my inspiration for becoming a chef, and i consider him the greatest chef in the world at the moment. people just don't understand this, and that's the point. it's not McDonalds or even a steak for that matter. it's something nobody has ever done except for a view people in the world, and in existence. it's simply amazing.
>>
>>7131260
except alinea and modernist cuisine isn't about food but about pop science and pop art
>>
>>7131706
>i've read Achatz book and he's by far my inspiration for becoming a chef
lol, I'd cook circles around you and your "art", m8
>>
>>7131712

A lot of people wouldn't get this, just like a lot of people wouldn't get a $50,000 stereo system or a $2,000 rifle (not sure how much they go for). For people like me, this level of cuisine is what we live for. So if you're here because you're curious, that's great. But if you start ridiculing our passion, fuck off.

>>
>>7131745

Nobody ever claimed Alinea was "a typical high-end" restaurant.

It's also stupid to think it has 3 Michelin stars because it's a gimmick.
>>
>>7130123
9/10 would fire for that shitty dishware
>>
question for anyone who's eaten there: what happens between courses? do they wipe down the table in front of you or ask you to move to a different one?
>>
>>7131745
Hurr durr muh burgers
>>
That looks like balloon molded dollar tree chocolate erupting into pieces of pillow stuffing, stale buttered tin popcorn, shelled pecans, and what looks like the top half of a toothbrush. Is this another one of those bullshit art experiments?
>>
>>7131883
I'm not trashing haute cuisine you pretentious yank pleb. I'm specifically trashing this kind of food performance art. Open a place like this in London or Paris and the only people who'd go there are rich Arabs and food bloggers. Sure the food might be good but no one wants to eat a contemporary art exhibit on a regular basis.

they wipe down the table in between courses

but the course in OP pic is dessert and they put down a silicon sheet beforehand, would be weird to eat something directly off a table on purpose lol
>>
>>7131946
>they wipe down the table in between courses
do they at least wipe it off into somebody's mouth so they didn't at least pay 300 dollars to not eat all of their food
>>
>>7131946
oh ok, i assumed every course was put straight on the table/sheet/whatever

yeah, they have an attractive waiter kneel at the end of the table to lick up crumbs that fall

I never get this, I've seen it on TV. Are you supposed to put your food through that like a wet wipe or is it just AESTHETICS?

To like one is to like the others, as the fashion and music are incorporated into the film.

You probably enjoy American formula food as well. No idea why yoire pretending to hate them when the reality is they're the focle point of your existence.

You're narcissistic, and you believe because you behave one way, everyone else must do.

In reality, music isn't exclusive to any country. And claiming it is, is the most ignorant thing I've ever heard. Same with fashion and films.

And pornography? This is something most people would consider degrading to a nation, and you're taking pride in it.
Pathetic.

Motherfucker there are balloons on the menu of this place.

Balloons, actual balloons, maybe with some flavor liquid.

Let that sink in when they hand you the massive bill for the "experience".

Food has gone too far.
