Waypoint: Now Open!

We are incredibly proud of/excited for our Waypoint family as they are now open! Waypoint, Chef Michael Scelfo’s second Cambridge restaurant, opened to the public in Harvard Square on August 26. Located across the square at 1030 Massachusetts Avenue, “waypoint” often means a plot point on a map. For Chef Scelfo, it signals a natural next step along his culinary journey. The menu at Waypoint reflects his forward-thinking approach to coastally-inspired fare, including: pizzas, pastas, roasts, raw bar, absinthe, and so much more. We hope you will check out the offerings from Chef Scelfo and the Waypoint family soon–we know we will!

Throughout his career, Chef Michael Scelfo has taken time to examine his personal culinary perspective: if given the opportunity to take off the reins and cook for people in a restaurant of his own, what would he make? He found the answer in his own kitchen, surrounded by his wife and three children. Creating a medium in which people can connect is what Chef Scelfo excels at. By incorporating intimate elements in the design and decor and weaving family recipes into his own, Chef Scelfo has created a space in which his vision is communicated through simple, elegant dishes inspired by what he would want to eat at home with his family.

At Alden & Harlow, Chef Michael Scelfo has extended the concept of the domestic kitchen table into his first owned and operated restaurant. Located in the iconic Casablanca restaurant space in Harvard Square, Alden & Harlow pays homage to its chef’s roots by bringing you food from the heart.
