Whole Farm Dinners

Each Tuesday, starting July 22nd, Chef Scelfo will team up with a different local farm and create a menu centered around what is fresh, delicious, and in season from the farm of the week. Each dinner will have ten spots available and will be held in the Greenhouse area of the restaurant pictured to the left. The dinner will include three rounds of three savory dishes each, all served family style, and a dessert course to finish. While the menus will highlight produce, they won’t be exclusively vegetarian. Tickets will be $60 per person, and for an additional $30, guests can enjoy wine pairings with each course selected by Jen Fields, our GM and Wine Director.  Email info@aldenharlow.com or call us at 617-864-2100 to reserve your spots! Each day will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

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.
