Alinea with 60 accompaniments that we were meant to try randomly.
Looking at the menu, I saw that the next course was called Which Came First? and I assumed that it was a chicken and egg course of some sort. While I was right, it was nothing that I expected and would never have guessed. We were presented with a piece of wood with a depression holding an opened eggshell behind which was a small metal rod with an alligator clip holding a Fried Cockscomb. Inside the eggshell was an Egg Custard over which were Shaved Black Truffles. We were told to unmount the cockscomb and dip it into the custard. I did that, but I also tried both elements individually and while they were very good together, they were also very good separately. The cockscomb was like a chicharron, the egg custard was very creamy and slightly salty, and the black truffle provided a nice funky flavor to everything.
looked large enough to make soup.
The final room that we were shown was the Grow Room. It was a hydroponic garden that grew the greens for the dinner. It was very cool to see and a great finish to the experience. Moto has grown up. They are still amazingly creative and the food and service is still great, but the presentations, for the most part no longer are plays on something else. The experience was a lot of fun and I would happily return.
