As you may have heard, Chef Grant Achatz and his team are jetting around the world while the home base, Alinea, is being renovated. Right now, the team is in Madrid, and while we can't afford a plane ticket, we can thank goodness that Spanish foodies really like their instagram. If you happen to be in Espana, check out the ticket page.

Check out some incredible looking courses from their Spanish pop-up, including "Rose on Roses," a dish served in a giant octopus, a Chicago hot dog and, of course, the signature balloon.
