Grant Achatz's Alinea may get all the national (and international) press, but over at Moto, chef Homaru Cantu and pastry chef Ben Roche are turning out delicious, ridiculously innovative meals--and they have a kitchen any scientist would envy. Included is a gorgeous indoor farm where they grow square watermelons made sweeter by bombarding them with classical music, as well as all kinds of exotic produce like mumeplant fruit, white pineberries, and poontalai seeds. Oh, and a huge array of gels, powders, and other additives. Check out the tour over at Saveur.
