Combining science, technology, and art, venerated chef Homaro Cantu has made a name for himself by turning culinary conventions on their heads. With today's offer, witness his cutting-edge cooking at iNG Restaurant during a ten-course "flavor-tripping" menu with drink pairings for $99 per person. The dinners are on select Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Your journey at iNG will begin with a taste of the miracle berry, a West African fruit that tricks the tongue into always sensing sweetness. On the menu -- which changes every six weeks -- are plates like the Hawaii Five-O: seared pork belly with sunchoke-and-hearts-of-palm purée and jalapeños; add pineapple powder, carbonated pineapple, and pineapple fluff, and it's a version of ambrosia salad you've never had. The drinks are just as quick to change profiles.

iNG, for 'imagining new gastronomy,'... is an experimental showcase of a very different sort: a casual atelier where prices are low... and the food, drinks, and décor are all over the map, in the best possible way.

The New York Times

the culinary chemist


Homaro Cantu's career has been nothing short of a phenomenon; in six years, he’s been featured in more than 1,000 articles in 37 countries. The New York Times called him "a chef in the Buck Rogers tradition, blazing a trail to a space-age culinary frontier." That's why he may be the only chef to ever have appeared in New Scientist. And while his patented inventions appear on display in New York’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, it’s certainly been his edible paper menu that’s garnered him the most attention -- see the October 2006 cover of Gourmet.
