Before becoming a Best New Chef at Portland, Oregon’s Castagna, Matt Lightner trained at Spain’s famed modernist restaurant Mugaritz. Now in New York, Lightner creates tasting menus that blend his passion for nature with molecular gastronomy techniques. Case in point: A particularly beautiful course looks like a razor clam but the shell is actually an ultra-light baguette painted with squid ink, and the delicate baton is filled with a briny clam mousse.
