lol ok bud. You would know as a... Brooklynite by way of Mexico City? Just make sure to tell that to the throngs of 20-somethings filling the bars along Lincoln, Clark, and Halsted. They SHOULD be hanging out in... the base of the Sears Tower I guess? Not sure where the preeminent Chicago urban scholar thinks is more urban and dense than Lincoln Park in Chicago but I assume you're picturing the Loop.

Also, what does Alinea have to do with anything? Trendy hipster neighborhoods are known for $800 a person meals? Corporate account restaurants signify high density? Alinea is for rich older folks.
Alinea is certainly culturally relevant.
