Video of the week: Daniel Boulud and MIT grads to debut robotic kitchen

Renowned chef collaborating with mechanical engineers for tech-savvy concept

Spyce is a one-of-a-kind concept slated to open in Boston on May 3. What makes the new restaurant stand out? The kitchen is operated almost entirely by robots.

Four mechanical engineers, graduates from MIT, thought up the idea for Spyce when looking to create a cheaper meal option for students. The team invited Daniel Boulud, a 2018 inductee into the MenuMasters Hall of Fame, to get involved. The famous chef is now the culinary director and an investor for the new concept.

In the kitchen, trained chefs prep the food and add finishing touches at the end, but robots do the bulk of the work: taking orders, assembling ingredients, cooking and washing.
