One of last year’s hottest tickets was the trade-off between Alinea and Eleven Madison Park, which saw the two celebrated restaurants cooking in each other’s kitchens. (We had slideshows of both events, here and here.) Now there’s something of a return engagement. To mark the publication of Eleven Madison Park’s new cookbook, I Love New York: Ingredients & Recipes, chef Daniel Humm, GM Will Guidara and staff will be on hand for two events at Alinea’s sibling Next. There are two events on Monday, April 15, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., both with food stations featuring dishes from the cookbook, Aviary cocktails, and the best brews from Brooklyn Brewery. Tickets are $135 (including food, drink and signed cookbook), but the real question is how you get in— you send a request (specifying preferred time, 6:00 or 9:00) to and you do it quick.
