Molecular Gastronomy in Austin

  • 2

I am moving to Austin in about six weeks and was wondering if any restaurants there specialize in prgressive cusine, i.e. molecular gastronomy. I have recently become intrigued by restaurants like Alinea and Schwa in Chicago and Minibar and the Town House Griill in D.C. and Virginia. These restaurants utilize progressive techniques, and I hope that I will be able to find somewhere like them in Austin.

  1. No... you'll probably have to make the trip to Houston or Dallas.

    1. Uchi isn't too far off. I don't know if they use any chemical concoctions in the kitchen, but they're good with unusual flavors and clever technique. The peanut butter sorbet that looks like a snowball then melts into perfect peanutiness is like nothing I've ever tasted before.
