Alinea's or Moto's
We are planning a trip to Chicago in a couple of weeks. We are trying to decide between Alinea's and Moto's. What are your thoughts? We've been wanting to try molecular gastronomy and thought this would be our chance. How are the two similar and different?
I'm in the Alinea camp as well. Both are in the forefront of molecular gastronomy. Moto focuses on the fantasy. Could come off as more child's play than anything else. Alinea is cerebral. It really makes one think and pushes your idea of what food should be.
This isn't even close - in my opinion it is literally like comparing The French Laundry with Bouchon - both serve french food....that is pretty much where the comparison ends. :-)
