L20 & a fine dining hang-over.

We had an Alinea hangover. How could any fine-dining meal top Alinea? And back-to-back, it hardly seemed fair for the other restaurant. Due to a $200 cancellation policy, we went to Laurent Gras’s fish and seafood focused restaurant L20

Here are some of the terrible photos from the quite tasty meal.
