#RoastingIt with Stumptown Coffee Roasters

Everyone knows brunch is all about beverages. You’ve got your cocktail (of course), your water, and your coffee. We feel like all are essential, but the coffee is what really starts the day. As an ode to the beauty of caffeine, we’re kicking off of our Saturday brunches with an afternoon with Stumptown Coffee Roasters. If you’re at all a coffee nerd, you know Stumptown is great at everything they do, from single-origin roasts to cold brew. Friends from Stumptown will be here all day to talk coffee, and we’ll be offering some special treats, like coffee flights and cold brew-based cocktails. Call 617-864-2100 to reserve a spot, we’ll see you here!


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.
