Opinionated About Alinea & Avenues

It looks like Alinea and Avenues here in Chicago can add another bullet point on their award list. Opinionated About Dining just released their Top 100 Restaurants in North America and Europe with Alinea and Avenues both ranking up there.

Avenues is on our list of restaurants to visit, right after we quit our second jobs trying to recover from paying for Moto.

Other restaurants of note are Michel Richard’s Citronelle and Jose Andres’ Minibar in D.C., and Chez Panisse in Berkeley. Three other restaurants on our “to visit” lists when we were in both cities. Next time Andres! Next time Richard!

You can get a free copy of the full list over at Opinionated About Dining‘s website for signing up to take part in the 2009 survey.

A partial list of restaurants with rankings is under the cut.
