Diners at Moto should be prepared to eat anything from “trash” to a "Cuban cigar" — that is, with his sense of whimsy and cerebral molecular gastronomy, chef Homaro Cantu’s creative dishes have been known to fool his guests, leading to playful culinary optical illusions, like a flowerpot with edible dirt. — Valaer Murray, 2/18/11

Time Out Chicago
In Homaro Cantu's restaurant, past trickery included a play on egg-drop soup in which frozen-egg and microgreen pellets were dropped into soup, and seared beef was paired with “caramelaserized wine.”

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.
The Feast
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.
Janet C
Get the wine pairings!
John Bates
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.
The Daily Meal
Go visit Chef Cantu in the "lab" (their affectionate term for the kitchen), then sit back and crunch down on the edible menu - all part of their deliciously theatrical 20-course tasting experience.

You will never look at candles the same way after eating here.

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.

If you got the loot.

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!
Jason Heller
Moto is a MUST when you are in Chicago. It is unlike any experience anywhere!
Leah Ray
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.
