Throughout his career, Chef Michael Scelfo always took the 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 answers in his home kitchen, surrounded by his wife and three children. Creating a medium in which people connect with other people is what Chef Scelfo excels at. Incorporating elements that have personal meaning while weaving together family recipes with his own, translates into simple, elegant dishes inspired by what he would want to eat with his family at home.

At Alden & Harlow, Chef Michael Scelfo takes this idea and figuratively extends his family’s kitchen table into his first owned and operated restaurant. Located in the iconic Casablanca restaurant space in Harvard Square, Chef Scelfo will pay homage to his roots, make each ingredient shine, and ultimately, cook from his heart.
