Surrounded by world-class research and scientific offices, Café ArtScience is a one-of-a-kind restaurant—half familiar dining experience, half sensory trip. It’s not a laboratory in the traditional sense of beakers and lab-coat technicians, though servers wear white shirts and bartenders extract “alcohol paints” with a fractional distiller. The brainchild of Harvard University professor David Edwards, it’s the food and beverage arm of his adjacent art/design/scientific innovation hub, Le Laboratoire. The bar produces some of the city's most inventive, unusual cocktails, while the kitchen churns out attractive dishes that exude modernist flair, never sacrificing flavor or quality. Cozy couch seating (along with marble tables and chairs) encourages chemistry between guests.
