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 />

"I don't like to give in to the hype when a new restaurant opens, but I was definitely curious to see what all the fuss was about. I was not disappointed! The menu - primarily small plates - was interesting and inventive, but still approachable and not intimidating. We selected a few things that I had already seen raved about in reviews. Each and every dish was phenomenal. I was very impressed - I did not expect to be so blown away! Highly recommended."
