'Lamb 86,' New Alinea Dish, Features 86 Different Components

Grant Achatz's Next Restaurant might have been getting a lot of the attention recently, but there's no reason to forget about Alinea (actually, we doubt anyone has). They are doing some crazy/cool stuff there, and you don't (yet) need tickets to dine there. For example, a new course the restaurant serves consists of 86 different components. We can't even fathom how long that takes to prep. "Lamb 86" is a beautiful dish, and we've got to think that there's some significance -- or at least a cool coincidence -- to the "86." After all, when a dish runs out, it is "eighty-sixed." This dish, however, is focused on abundance rather than scarcity.
