Molecular Gastronomy in or near San Diego
Hello all....this is my first post in this awesome board and I was wondering if you knowledgable people know of any place like that title says? Me and the wifey are very curious about tasting some of the wierder creations and don't have the money to spend to go to Chicago or New York....or El Bulli...:)
You won't find anything close to molecular gastronomy in SD. The closest restaurant which uses some of the "modern" cooking techniques is Coi in San Francisco. Otherwise get a plane ticket to Chicago, New York or Washington.
"father of Molecular Gastronomy"...? A frustrated Ferran Adria could not be reached for comment. Nonetheless,
is the site you're looking for and a short 1 1/2 hour drive from SD. Heck, why not make a weekend of it and check into the SLS hotel (where Bazaar is located)? Think they're still offering opening special rates...
Haven't been to the new El Biz, but Kitchen 1540 in Del Mar has a few of those "molecular" whims, like pop rocks on foie gras and caramelized yogurt and stuff.
