It's not like when Lady Gaga joined Instagram and almost immediately got more than 100,000 followers, but in the restaurant world, it's sort of the equivalent. Alinea finally launched an official Facebook page this morning and its fans are not being shy when it comes to liking it. The page looks to have gone up around 8:30 this morning and two hours later it already has nearly 2,000 likes. It'll be interesting to see where that number is by the end of the day.
Alinea looks to have posted the site now as it gears up to switch over to a ticketing system similar to the one utilized by Next, which is also owned by chef Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas. So if you're hoping to get in on the ticketing system when it goes live, go check out the page, like it and get updates.
