It was an unusual dining experience in China that inspired owner Jason Gordon to open Soul Tavern, a vegan and vegetarian restaurant with a Chinese elixir bar. He recalls walking into a restaurant, where he was greeted by a maître d', which happened to be a doctor. Rather than asking him the number of people in his party, the gentleman inquired about Gordon’s condition, wrote him a prescription and handed it to the chef. What came to his table was both a meal and a remedy. Now Gordon, a doctor himself, designed a menu in which every dish harmonizes with one of the five principles of Chinese medicine. Yes, even the pizza has some levelling benefit and it tastes good. Tacos, pastas and other standard fare is made with whole ingredients and are free of GMOs. Though the real health kick is found in any of the 32 elixirs available to sip solo, with a cold-pressed juice or as part of a cocktail—because alcohol has its own restorative properties.
