    I've been to a few restaurants that are into molecular gastronomy and deconstructed dishes, etc - at both michelin starred or just well regarded restaurants

    I find that most of them look like works of art, but typically don't taste all that great. I'm amazed at the colors, shapes and presentation, but just always end up disappointed when I bite into them. I mush prefer more traditional cooking styles with simple, high quality ingredients.

    I agree with you that a simple dish cant be beaten. The besh dish I have ever eaten was a fish cooked only with vegetables at Le louis XV in Monaco.
    Before going to this molecular restaurant I thought the same, good presentation but food lacking of taste, and I was wrong. They really cooked everything perfect retaining all the taste and more than you would expect. And I think this is the point, if you cant keep the flavors and taste then there is no point cooking like that.
