Moto
Gourmet temple or laboratory? Moto could be both. While Ferran Adrià in former times and Heston Blumenthal today have picked chemistry as their playing field, Cantu is devoted to physics. A caring, avant-garde interpretation of the so-called techno cuisine. Cantu attempts to deconstruct American standards and present them in new forms. In this way he freeze-dries fried chicken and grinds them in order to transform them into his Kentucky-fried pasta and serve them with grated black truffles. There are no single dishes. Instead you'll be taken on an adventurous trip to the future of culinary pleasures. Cantu has invented a procedure that makes it possible to eat the menu. Sauces and food colourings are printed on edible paper. Fun fact: the single lines taste exactly of what they are referring to.

Al Capone Tour
According to the yellow pages Al Capone has traded with antiques in the early decades of the past century, that is with second-hand furniture. What else did Alphonse Gabriel aka Al Capone need in order to become the most notorious criminal in America? Gambling, alcohol and prostitution. These were the ingredients with which he stirred up the Chicago underworld. Moreover, with his cover-up tactics - he invested illegal revenues in laundry services - he laid the foundation for money laundering. How exactly the crafty self-exposer managed to do so remains unclear.   His domain in the Windy City, however, is not. The Haunting of Al Capone tour by tour provider Weird Chicago follows the most important locations of Al Capone's activities. Many of his buildings are already torn down and replaced by new complexes. His ghost, however, is said to be still around. That's why Troy Taylor and Ken Melvoin-Berg take Capone fans to Mt Carmel Cemetry in Hillside, too - where the gangster boss was buried. Hopefully, for good!

Architecture Shop
Chicago is home town of the skyscraper. After the fire catastrophe in 1871 which destroyed large parts of the city, a new era of architecture has begun. After sketches by William La Baron Jenney the first high-rise buildings with steel frame construction on the world sprung up. In 1909 Daniel Burnham submitted a master plan for the city which would later become a model for other cities. Until today Chicago is a mecca for architecture fans. The Sears Tower, the John Hancock Center and the Aon Center range among the highest buildings in the world. The best starting point for exploring these high rises is the Chicago Architecture Foundation which offers more than 70 tours through the city. At the foundation's shop you can buy the prettiest souvenirs in Chicago. In the form of decorative objects of famous designers and architects, souvenirs of architectural legends, books, illustrated books and on top of that pieces by local jewellery designers.

Homewood Suites
If you want to stay at the pulsating heart of Chicago there are many glossy luxury hotels. But you can also go with a more comfortable option.

If you want to cater for yourself - no problem: there is a fully-equipped kitchen and the fridge is filled on your arrival. What distinguishes the hotel from the masses are extras and service. The grocery shopping is done for you and free of charge and a warm breakfast buffet and dinner with several small dishes from Monday to Thursday (even a glass of beer or wine) are included. You don't even pay for fitness and workout. The plus for kids: dabbling in the pool, and each apartment is equipped with a video game console. Family apartments from 135 euros.
