Located at 40 Brattle Street in Harvard Square, Alden & Harlow serves thoughtfully sourced, honest American food in a subterranean, modern and comfortable space. Replicating the style of cooking he does for family and friends in his home kitchen, Chef Michael Scelfo prepares humble, unpretentious food that honors tradition of place in its quality. It's how he connects with anyone who joins them at their table.<br /><br />While reservations are strongly suggested, we also save a portion of the dining room and bar for walk-ins in the event that your request cannot be accommodated, so, please, come on in!<br /><br />Parties of 8 or more, please call to make a reservation.<br />

"This place is amazing! Wonderful tapas style interesting American Fare. We started with the Kale Salad, Cauliflower Caponata and this outstanding broccoli dish. Each dish was better than the the previous one. Next was the Burrata, Smoked Avacado and Tortellini which all were terrific. Dinner consisted of the Secret Burger, Clams and the Pork Belly with stawberries. Such a fun and delicious evening. Can't stop raving about this oplace and so looking forward to returning."

<br />We are located in Harvard Square steps from the Red Line on the site where Stephen Daye, the first printer in British America lived. First Printer Restaurant offers an elegant yet simple gastropub featuring American classics, fresh New England seafood and yummy vegetarian options. The restaurant is decorated with antique type cases, printing paraphernalia and newspapers dating back 300 years. Our dining room seats 95 and includes many handcrafted mahogany booths, an 18 seat full bar and a private gathering room in a converted bank vault. Please check out our ever-evolving menus at www.thefirstprinter.com.<br /><br />

"Received a gift card and decided to try First Printer. The place was active and we were warmly greeted at the door. Our waiter was terrific! He clearly new the menu and the preparation of the items. At our request, he made suggestions on favrorite menu items. We started with the musssel appetizer that was delicious. Fresh mussels in a buttery broth with tha thick piece of toasted bread. I had the burger with add on including the jalapenoo relish and I must admit it was one of the best burgers that I've had in a long time! We will be back..."

Abe & Louie's represents the ultimate in classic American steakhouses, while still maintaining local charm and appeal. Our philosophy focuses on the finest quality food and service; this emphasis on quality is showcased in our décor and atmosphere. The Abe & Louie's commitment to quality is best represented in our signature prime steaks that are selected from the finest corn-fed, local and Midwestern beef. All the steaks served are aged 6 weeks on the bone to ensure the most flavorful and juicy steaks. Guests will marvel at our menu's emphasis on our fresh seafood and produce. The lump crab cake and swordfish chop are signature dishes, outstanding in their own right, in addition to the exclusive bone-in filet mignon and other fine steaks and chops. Our high-quality cuisine is paired with an award-winning wine list featuring a selection of over 200 wines from the best regions in the world.

"Visiting the South Shore area and went to Steel and Rye for an early dinner. I had been looking forward to see this place because my husband and I used to dine at Catch in Winchester. The dining room is awesome and such a unique and relaxing atmosphere. The presentation of the food is very cool and the menu has something for everyone. I got the chicken pot pie and it was very good. It arrived at the table in a deep crock covered in pastry. The dish was a bit different than I'm used to with mushrooms, bay leaves and a taste of lemon. Would love to head back when I'm in the area and have a bit more time."

The Summer Shack is a fun, casual restaurant, specializing in New England Style Seafood. We offer 10 to 12 different types of oysters daily. Lobsters in varying sizes and styles including our signature clambake. Wonderful local grilled fish and crispy fried seafood. We do offer several non-seafood items as well. Steaks, burgers and award winning fried chicken. We are a children friendly restaurant and we can accommodate larger groups upon request.
