Spyce Reopens in Boston's Downtown Crossing with Some Changes Made

A restaurant in the heart of Boston that features the use of robots has returned nearly a year after temporarily closing, and some changes have come to the place.

According to a press release, Spyce in Downtown Crossing is open once again, with the menu now including salads and warm bowls that are customizable to meet the dietary needs/restrictions of customers along with options for those with food allergies. The menu at the Washington Street spot is run via an app, website, and in-store kiosks, and the eatery now has its own delivery fleet including electric mopeds and on-staff delivery servers.

The Spyce concept, which was created by MIT students in 2015, led to the opening of the Downtown Crossing location in the spring of 2018, with the dining spot featuring a robotic kitchen and being in business until last November, when it shuttered as it got ready to make changes. A second location of the place plans to open in Cambridge's Harvard Square later this fall.

The address for Spyce in Downtown Crossing is 241 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02201. Its website can be found at
