The end of Medicine
According to a bunch of people on Yelp, which, yeah I know may not be the most accurate source of information, Mecine Eatstation is closing its doors and wrapping itself in a cocoon of renovation. What emergers will be woefully different.
Medicine is perhaps my favorite vegetarian restaurant. Did I say is? I meant was.
Medicine served a modern take on Shojin cuisine, which is sort of like super healthy vegetarian monastery food. It’s unique, to be sure. They had wonderfully odd tasting courses and sake pairings. They had a black sesame tofu that curled my toes. They had the richest and most savory miso in town.
But that will be no more.
When Medicine Eatstation shrugs off its cocoon it will no longer be a vegetarian restaurant based on 5,000 years of tradition. Instead, it will sell . . . fish and bento boxes. To the business lunch crowd. How utterly original, eh?
