Exhausted robots at Downtown Crossing restaurant to get some time off

Boston Restaurant Talk reports that Spyce, where robots make the food, is closing for a couple of months of renovations and menu changes. Maybe they could keep the robots working by having them repaint the digits of pi that the MIT graduates who opened the place felt needed to be torn off their Pi Alley wall so they could put in a window (honestly, you'd think MIT grads, of all people, would have some reverence for pi).

Real math people save their reverence for e

So, 2.71 or 27/1 which is Euro for January 27.

Except do you round it up to 2.72 and have it a month later?

And what do you bake?!

Something with an active culture that grows exponentially.

Actually many mathematicians reserve their highest reverence for Euler's Identity, which unites e and pi in transcendental harmony.

And don't forget i.

That terminator is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until the menu needs to be changed.

Perhaps the market is really not there for getting served food by machinery?

Yeah they’re reopening! I also heard they’re opening another spot in Harvard Square

If you worked downtown, you'd know it. I walked by today and the line was out the door and halfway down Pi Alley.

They sometimes even run out of food.

At Spyce, a bowl is $7.50 vs upwards of $10 at many of the other bowl places in DTX

Fresh things mixed together, not over mixed, not overcooked. Consistent, too.

Its my rainy day, didn't bring a lunch go-to.

If your idea of a tasty meal is frozen chicken and veggies, topped with pre-packaged 'asian' sauces, this might be your place. It's Fire and Ice's terminator baby. There are plenty of lunch options in that area, and robotic bowl-warmed meal is supposed to compete? The operation needs to move to the airport. I can see success there.

as far as i can tell, the only "cooking" the robots do is spinning a bowl to mix ingredients.
