New Ginza offers a truly unique dining experience in Watertown Square, serving the finest in traditional and modern Japanese cuisine. Come and sit at our sushi bar to chat with Masaki-San, a Japanese native and professionally trained sushi chef. With his expertise, New Ginza is able to provide daily sushi specials that arrive directly from his home town of Kyushu. If you are in the mood for something from our kitchen, let our executive chef Chen-San, of both Ginza Boston and Brookline fame, delight you with one of his original creations, including our sake and soy marinated lamb chops. Complete your meal with a selection from our full bar. Established in 2001, New Ginza has been in business for well over a decade and continues to provide the utmost best in food quality and service. We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Fifth Element, in its new incarnation, is a casual-hip dining hangout populated by locals, destination diners and tourists alike. The interior is finished with a winning combination of rustic and industrial decor. Its wide open space is hardly cold or sterile. It is warm and welcoming, made so by earth-toned paints, water walls, touches of soft upholstered furniture and a prodigious bar built from reclaimed old growth pine. Like the space in which it is served, the food of The Fifth Element is multi-textured. Chef Chris DePerro builds flavors that evoke satisfying feelings of home cooking, but done by the hand of a pro. In no way is his food homespun. It is well thought out. It is seasonal. It is fresh. Simply, it is food you crave.

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 />
