Reflect

Otom has little in common with Moto, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good.

It appears Otom will have little in common with Moto, the revolutionary restaurant that inspired it: no edible menus; no CO2 fruit; no desserts done up to look like nachos. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be good. Homaro Cantu tapped Daryl Nash, a veteran of Moto (and the U.S. Air Force), to run his “mirror-image” spot two doors west, and the menu looks promising. Everyone’s calling it comfort food, but it’s hard to imagine polishing off an entire mac-and-cheese/lasagne love child with pancetta and leeks dripping with a four-cheese sauce (pictured left; $14), and feeling remotely comfortable afterward. 951 W. Fulton Market; 312-491-5804.
