Why locals love it

Increased now to $250 a head, minibar is as much theatre as it is dining. With every bite made to make you "oo" and "ah", it's no wonder people travel from all over the world to experience the novelty and innovation of this celebrity chef. minibar is at the forefront of deconstruction, molecular gastronomy, and other culinary magic.

Why you should visit it

If you've got deep pockets and you're savvy enough to get a reservation, minibar is a rare dining experience. Though it has gotten some heat for how severe price is now (it used to be $65...), there aren't many places like it. Where else might you find cotton candy useful or complex texture to infuse in a savory entree, for example.

Special tip

It's nearly impossible to get in, so book ahead. Months ahead.
