What makes Dr. Jason Gordon unique as the mindful alchemist behind Soul Tavern is his ability to seek guidance from within. It has allowed him to draw on a distinct set of skills that are required in order for an innovative restaurant concept, centered on the five elements, to succeed: Demonstrated success as a restauranteur and businessperson. Check. A breadth of knowledge about ancient medicinal arts and Eastern thought. Check. A profound passion for healing and a desire to nourish all those he encounters. Check. Check.
Soul Tavern is the manifestation of a lifelong vision. From his time at business school, his entrepreneurial endeavors, to his current alchemic healing practice, Dr. Gordon has dedicated himself to promoting health and wellness by asking tough questions about life and meeting its lessons with compassion and dedication. Yoga, acupuncture, ancient studies, education, and meditation are all as much at the center of Gordon’s business concept as are the conventions of hospitality that make Soul Tavern a must-visit culinary retreat.
The healing property of food is well documented from ancient texts through modern journals of medicine. It forms a distinct and intimate relationship with the person who eats it that propels a life in one direction or another. The role of an alchemist is to transform one thing into another by a seemingly magical process. Through Soul Tavern, Dr. Gordon has taken vegan cuisine and ancient elixirs and transformed them into a welcoming hangout that elevates the spirit in a casual and inviting setting. He has integrated the valuable lessons he’s learned through his career and self-reflection and dared to impact the restaurant world by making the ancient new again. He kindly invites us all to join him on this journey.
