In a season suffused with spectacle, the most interesting artistic experience you may have during Art Basel could fall from the art festival’s central focus. It may not, in fact, be art at all. Rebellious at being relegated solely to the sensation of taste, it’s with great pomp and circumstance that “Million Dollar Chef” Walter Martino incenses all the senses with his latest and greatest restaurant, Kaori, a digitally-enhanced dining experience that makes the word “restaurant” seem hopelessly underwhelming. Enjoy innovative dishes intersecting the Italian and Japanese gastrospheres while surrounded by 360-degree projection screens showcasing the finest in contemporary videography, all in an intimate 24-seat white-lacquered dining room every bit as contemporary as the groundbreaking chef who designed it. Open for lunch 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. with two seatings for dinner, at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.; KaoriByWM.com.
