Alinea’s Grant Achatz masterminded this experimental cocktail lounge where there’s no bar or bartenders (chefs do the mixing in the kitchen) and each drink comes in a custom-designed glass. Drinks are unusual in every way, from the flavor combinations (a Truffled Negroni) to their presentation—the old-fashioned is served inside a sphere of ice that you have to crack open to drink.
