After Trump served the 2018 College Football Playoff National Champions an array of fast food during their visit to the White House on Monday, our very own Alinea decided to take advantage of this golden arch of a marketing opportunity.
Alinea co-owner Nick Kokonas wasn’t kidding when he invited the Clemson Tigers to enjoy “what an actual celebration dinner should be” at his fine dining restaurant at 1723 N Halsted St. He sent out a Tweet the day after the pathetic White House meal and tagged @ClemsonTigers for good measure.
I could care less about college football. But I'm personally inviting the Clemson Tigers team and coaches to Chicago to experience what an actual celebration dinner should be.
I'm not joking.Advertisement
Someone let them know what The Alinea Group does. It'll be worth it@ClemsonTigers

A meal at the three-Michelin-starred Alinea will always be effortlessly better than the spread of Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Burger King, and Domino’s that the president served these college champs. We’re really hoping the Clemson Tigers take him up on the offer because we’re actually secretly all very jealous. And what better way to market Alinea than to get the faces of pseudo-celebrities in their restaurant?
The Alinea Group owns several fine-dining establishments around Chicago, including Next, the Aviary, and Roister. Check them out for your next special event—trust me, if you wanna impress bae, these are the spots to be.
And as for you, Nick Kokonas, we sincerely applaud you.
