THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Moto Restaurant Review

: MOTO'S LAST NIGHT OF SERVICE WAS FEBRUARY 14, 2016 --- Moto breaks all the rules, blazing trails that are both uncharted and titillating for those who view dining as a theatrical, multi-sensory affair. In the past, sushi rolls have been wrapped not in the typical seaweed, but with flavored, edible "paper." Food-based inks create colorful images. Menus (edible, too) are sometimes flavored like main course dishes, and pictures might take on sensory properties (i.e. an image of a cow smacks of steak). Truly, this minimalist spot in the ever-hopping Fulton Market District is mind-blowing, and you will pay for the experience in kind. Two tasting menus are proposed, one consisting of eight courses ($125, available Tuesday through Thursday) and the other 16 courses ($175, available Tuesday through Saturday). Beverage pairings are also an option. Fortunately, the servers know what they are presenting; unless explained to the diner, it can be difficult to interpret menu descriptions (fallen log, aged carrot, strawberries & cream) as nothing is what it seems. Expect a well-researched wine list. The restaurant includes a unique indoor farm and also a state-of-the-art lab that doubles as a private dining area. (Note: Chef-owner Homaro Cantu has died.)
