And among those is that offered by Moto, a West Loop hot spot located at 945 W. Fulton Market that has become known for their mastering of molecular gastronomy.

ChatChow TV recently spoke with Moto's chef de cuisine Richie Farina -- whom you might also recognize from season nine of "Top Chef" -- about his innovative culinary creations, including a stunning seasonal platter titled "Study of Venison."
