One of the world's best restaurants, Alinea brings on multiple courses of mind-bending molecular gastronomy. Dishes may emanate from a centrifuge or be pressed into a capsule, a la duck served with a ‘pillow of lavender air.’ There are no reservations. Instead Alinea sells tickets two to three months in advance via its website. Check the Twitter feed (@Alinea) for last-minute seats.

Chef Grant Achatz gutted and renovated the restaurant in early 2016, so it feels a bit less mod and more classic. Vegetarians need to call in advance to see if the ever-changing menu can be modified. Note that there's no sign on the restaurant's door, so look for the street number.
