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..."
