“Good Bar Food Nerd Style”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

While on a College visit tour of Boston Area colleges, in Cambridge my son chose this restaurant because of the name and the fact that the menu was in the form of the Periodic Table. It was a nice day so the windows were all open to this bar - restaurant which made for a pleasant, if noisy atmosphere. Its proximity to MIT made it seem a fun type of nerdy like the college itself. The food was inexpensive bar food. The guacamole and chips were excellent, the veggie burger, veggie skewer and chicken sandwich were good as were the tap beers.
A good place for quick, inexpensive, simple food and a beer.

“Fantastic food and vibe”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The Miracle of Science is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants in Cambridge. Great location, close to both Kendall and Central Square (and conveniently right near Toscanini's- a sinful combination!). The vibe is wonderful, super casual and young. Frequented by lots of local students. I love the recipe board, designed like the Periodic Table. Went for drinks and burgers, which did not disappoint. Perfectly cooked, flavorful burger, and a delicious potato side. Nice selection of beer/cider on tap. Very pleased, definitely will be back!

“Nice "neighborhood" spot”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Convenient to MIT this compact bar and grill is a nice place to grab a burger or beer. Cute adoption of the periodic table sets the stage for the menu of mostly burgers and kabobs. A nice beer range adds to flavor and was only made better by a attentive and cheerful server.
