Imagine if you could inhale your morning coffee for an instant hit of caffeine. Well, there’s no reason to merely imagine it – you can buy inhalable coffee for $2 at Cafe ArtScience. ArtScience is something between a restaurant, a bar, an art gallery, a “concept shop,” and an event auditorium. Or perhaps you might call it a food lab.
Café ArtScience is located in Kendall Square next to Le Laboratoire Cambridge, an art, science and innovation center. Both the restaurant and the Center are creations of David Edwards, a Harvard University professor of biomedical engineering. His background should explain a lot.
Many innovations from the Center have been introduced in the Café: the WikiPearl, an edible “skin” for serving everything from water to ice cream and Le Whaf, a machine that turns liquid into vapor, to mention just a few. The décor blends the clinical orderliness of a lab and the sleek, modern lines of an art gallery. Somehow, the ambience is perfect for encouraging conversation, which is what inevitably happens when you order something like Crispy Heads of Grilled Massachusetts Shrimps with Truffled Cream of Corn and Ham Emulsion. Visiting Café ArtScience is an experience, and, for all we know, a glimpse of things to come.
