A Science-Inspired Restaurant Where You Inhale Your Dessert Mints

14 10 LABCAM 7 600x450

Cafe ArtScience, a newly opened restaurant in Cambridge, is an operation that stays true to its obvious name.

From WIRED:

If you were to walk into Cafe ArtScience in Cambridge, Mass., you might assume it’s yet another upscale restaurant with a farm-to-table sensibility. It’s got a slick Mathieu Lehanneur-designed interior, but doesn’t look especially unusual. Then you reach the host stand. Beneath its glass top, small tubes labeled “mint” “chocolate” and “energy” are arrayed like plastic bullets. These little packages contain inhalable after-dinner mints.

“The idea is to get people to walk away with mints you breathe,” says David Edwards. “This is energy,” he continues, pointing to an orange tube. “Amazing coffee.”

Edwards is the mastermind behind the Cafe ArtScience and its corresponding gallery space, Le Laboratoire. The dinner mints are AeroPods. You inhale the small cartridges of dried food particles and nutrients using the AeroLife, one of many inventions of his design aimed at revolutionizing how we consume food.
