Catalyst Restaurant is a reflection of Chef-Owner William Kovel's passion for simple, delicious food delivered with warm service in a comfortable, modern environment. The modern American cuisine begins with exceptional products centered on locally grown organic produce and wild and farm raised food from sustainable practices. With an ever-changing menu, Catalyst celebrates each season by featuring the best ingredients from a wide range of farms and food producers in the region.
Reclaimed barn board, hand-blown glass light fixtures and a two-way fireplace give the large restaurant a comfortable, cozy feel. The Chef's dining area gives diners a glimpse into the behind the scenes of the restaurant while the atrium dining takes full advantage of the sweeping floor to ceiling 30 foot windows. In the spring, summer and fall months the covered and heated outdoor patio offers a beautifully landscaped spot for al fresco dining.

Eat for a Cause
Cooking for a Cause hits its tenth year on Friday, April 12th at the MIT Media Lab.
From his simple beginnings as a busboy in his native Norwood, Massachusetts, chef Anthony Mazzotta has risen up through the culinary ranks to become one of the most promising talents in Boston.
With encouragement and inspiration from his mother and his large Italian family, Mazzotta graduated from New Hampshire College and began his career in Boston, at Le Meridien Hotel.
After working in other Boston institutions like EVOO and the Ritz Carlton, Mazzotta expanded his professional horizons in California, where he worked under famed chef Thomas Keller at The French Laundry, one of the most renowned restaurants in the world. He followed this up with an equally impressive stint at Keller's celebrated Per Se, in New York, helping to earn the restaurant its coveted Michelin three stars.
Back in his native New England, Mazzotta opened acclaimed Boston Chef Ken Oringer's Toro restaurant in 2005, and then continued on to lead the kitchen at Lucca Back Bay. Today, Mazzotta works alongside lifelong friend William Kovel as Chef de Cuisine of the much-anticipated Catalyst Restaurant in Cambridge, Mass. Here, he is helping to create an innovative menu of modern American cuisine with French influences, bringing together experiences from his past while developing fresh ideas for the future.
