Moto is a molecular gastronomy restaurant in the Fulton River District of Chicago, Illinois known for creating "high-tech" dishes which incorporate elements such as carbonated fruit, edible paper, lasers and liquid nitrogen for freezing food. Moto is run by Executive Chef Homaro Cantu and owner Alex Espalin. A sister restaurant, "iNG" is located next door, which serves "flavor tripping cuisine" based on the miracle berry, which makes sour foods taste sweet. The Spring/Summer 2012 menu at Moto featured 15 courses, including "Reconstructed Corn," "Forest Foraging 2.0," "The Explosion," and "Smell the Glove." The meal begins with a menu without words, in which the 15 courses are downsized into bite-size portions, with the dessert courses made into savory versions so as not to spoil the palate. Moto is also the main feature of the TV show "Future Food" on the Planet Green/Discovery Channel network and was recognized as one of the Top 10 Molecular Gastronomy Restaurants in the U.S. by GAYOT. In 2012, Forbes Magazine put Moto at #44 on its list of "The 100 Best US Restaurants."
