Longfellow is looking for motivated, hard working and experienced line cooks.
This winter, award-winning chef and restaurateur Michael Scelfo will launch The Longfellow Bar at Alden & Harlow, a neighborhood bar and restaurant located in the historic Café Algiers space directly above his flagship restaurant at 40 Brattle Street in Harvard Square. The two-story space is named after famed architect Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow, who along with his business partners Frank Alden and Alfred Harlow created Brattle Hall in 1889.
In 2014, Boston Globe restaurant critic Devra First awarded Alden & Harlow a three-star review. Bon Appetit magazine selected Alden & Harlow as one of 50 nominees for “America’s Best New Restaurants.” They were also highlighted as one of the Best Restaurants in the Northeast by Arrive magazine. In 2015, Alden & Harlow was a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation Awards in the Best New Restaurant category and Chef Michael Scelfo was a semifinalist in the category of Best Chef Northeast in 2016. In the 2016 Best of Boston awards, Boston magazine honored Alden & Harlow with Best Restaurant: General Excellence. In September 2016, Conde Nast Traveler named Alden & Harlow one of the “Best Restaurants in the World.”
At Waypoint, The Boston Globe’s food critic wrote, “…business appears to be booming. Scelfo’s fans are on board for the next stage of the journey.” In The New York Times, writer Jason Tesauro said Waypoint is “vibrant enough for a happy hour pop-in, yet intimate enough for after-dark canoodling over caviar and cocktails.” In January 2017, Boston Magazine awarded Waypoint a three-star review boasting, “with full-bore flavors and opulent ingredients, [Waypoint] gives pristine seafood—and everything else on the menu—the Midas touch.” In May 2017, Waypoint was recognized as one of Food and Wine Magazine’s Best New Restaurants of the Year.
