Where to find molecular gastronomy in Toronto?

What are the best places to experience molecular gastronomy?

        Surely Colborne Lane can't be the only place....doesn't C5 play around with foam on some of their dishes?

            i don't know that i would classify foam as molecular gastronomy...if one would, it would certainly be at the least creative and challenging of the genre

              I agree completely.

              (Not a huge fan of foam myself, though I still love bubble bathes)

                I think that foam is part of molecular gastronomy, although, yes, at the least creative spectrum. But some restaurants are at least playing with it. I figured if a restaurant would have foam...maybe they would have powders, or use sous vide, or even better liquid nitrogen for ice cream!

                  most places that do foam really only place the ingredients into a whipped cream maker with isi charge...not much thought there...sous vide is all over the place, most celebrated is mark cutura at cowbell
