MICHAEL SCELFO

Chef Scelfo’s career path has never been a linear one – twists, turns and many travels in between have brought him to this moment. Located at the gateway to Harvard Square at 1030 Massachusetts Avenue, “waypoint” often means a plot point on a map. As his second restaurant project, Waypoint signals a natural next step along his culinary journey. The menu reflects his forward-thinking approach to coastally-inspired fare - marrying his time spent along the Atlantic and Pacific shores.

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 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 making each ingredient shine, and ultimately, cooking from his heart.

The success of this formula is proven in the attention the restaurant has received. In 2014, Boston Globe restaurant critic Devra First awarded Alden & Harlow a three-star review. They were honored to be the Best New Restaurant by Boston magazine and The Improper Bostonian as well as being chosen as “The Best of the New” in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine. Bon Appetit magazine nominated Alden &Harlow as one of 50 nominees for “America's Best New Restaurants.” They were also highlighted as one of the Best Restaurants in the Northeast by Arrive magazine. In 2015, Alden & Harlow was a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation Awards in the Best New Restaurant category and Chef Michael Scelfo was a semifinalist in the category of Best Chef Northeast in 2016. Additionally, in the 2016 Best of Boston awards, Boston magazine honored Alden & Harlow with Best Restaurant: General Excellence.
