Chef Homaro Cantu has become the poster child of the mad-scientist conceptual-cooking fad in America. The result is "postmodern interactive cuisine" that is worth the experiment.
Moto is a MUST when you are in Chicago. It is unlike any experience anywhere!
Eat here if you can possibly afford it. It is revolutionary. If you can't afford to eat here, then drink here. You will thank me for this tip.
Part chef, part mad scientist, Homaro Cantu's playful attitude towards molecular gastronomy often tricks diners by offering familiar looking dishes concocted out of something totally unexpected.
When you realize that the waiters are chefs, and the phrase "molecular gastronomy" is being bantered about, you know you're in for an intense culinary experience.
Ok, 10 course. Come early, plan to spend the whole evening, no rushing. This is worth one of the ever so precious evenings of your life, so enjoy it. Mmmm. Wow. Good.
Amazing food. Service & ambiance leave a lot to be desired.
Make sure you try the cucumber ginger cocktail.
If you got the loot.
This is how moto does a plate of vegtables. Absolutely stunning

You get a mini version of the entire meal: a terrarium w/ sashimi cubes, a tiny bagel, a "tree trunk" of little pancakes.–Green Guide Editor
Get the wine pairings!
cucumber ginger cocktail is FANTASTIC.
You will never look at candles the same way after eating here.
Ladies, you won't fully understand the experience until you use the toilet. Seriously.
A must-visit in Chicago. Choose the tasting menu and drink pairing...you'll never have another experience like it!
Amazing experience, and would recommend the wine tasting along with the 15 course dinner. Bison Tartar was my favorite

Loved the private booth. Food was amazing, but not that filling. Great place to celebrate my birthday!
The creativity never ceases to amaze
Tasting menu is amazing!

Had an amazing 15-course Culinary journey. Very outrageous and out-of-the-box creations by the chefs. Food tasted amazing, "The Paradise" dessert was my personal favorite. One of Chicago's gem!
Ask for a booth so there won't be any spoilers from the other diners in the main room. The element of surprise here important!
Each experience at Moto is a different adventure in molecular gastronomy and mind-blowing cuisine. Come with an open mind and an appetite for something new!
Outstanding in everyway.
Great place! Loved the concept. There are very accomodating, I asked for some corned beef to take home, got a vacuum bag of corned beef!!
Pricey, but insanely delicious experimental cuisine from TED featured chefs Homaro Cantu and Ben Roche. Also the stars of the reality show Future Food.
I did the 10 course menu with two other people with some drinks. Not sure that a $596 bill was worth it? But, hey it's a once in a lifetime opportunity.
