Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Raw sugar pumpkin salad
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, New American, Cocktail, West Cambridge
"This is just a great dish—warming and soulful, sweet and savory—it hits all the notes. There is a nice punch of acid that helps cut through the rich flavors, too, and it's ultimately a very well balanced dish."
the smoked whitefish pizza
$$$, Modern, Seafood, New American, Mid Cambridge
"So late to the game but @waypointharvard is really really good. This radish and apple salad (pickled, raw, cooked) was the perfect counterpoint to the smoked whitefish pizza and uni bucatini that I was shoveling into my face. Thank you for such great hospitality @mscelfo your team is awesome"
