Quote Of The Freaking Year

Isn’t there a restaurant in Chicago with that chef, who just won some crazy award, who’s like, “I will poach the…idea of a pine needle, and insert it into your vagina at some point during your visit.” Do you know what I’m talking about? It’s called Alinea or something.

Pitchfork: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

I know it’s in Chicago. Check it out, and then you must go! Some courses are served in motions, like, they have a sex swing that they put a piece of broccoli rabe on?

Pitchfork: I’ll have to look that up.

I think you should make a reservation for tonight.
