has been using more than his palate to experience good dining in Chicago. The series Soundbites
has taken you through a journey of the senses. His last stop is Alinea
. As you might suspect, controlling sound is a big part of the cooking and dining experience at this restaurant, which many consider one of the finest in the world.
David Hammond is a contributor to Chicago Reader

and The Local Beet
. He is a founding moderator of LTH Forum.com
, the Chicago-based culinary chat site.
