Morimoto Is Mad for Matsutake Mushrooms

Morimoto, the Iron Chef’s original restaurant on Chestnut Street, is known for its omakase (tasting menus), which are offered nightly, but this fall, there’s an additional $100 seven-course tasting that centers around the delicate, increasingly rare matsutake mushroom that is prized in Japan. Click through to see the fungi-centric menu, which even includes a mushroom-based ice cream.
