Waypoint is looking for a General Manager to lead their team! Located just outside of Harvard Square, Waypoint reflects his forward-thinking approach to coastally inspired fare. 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.” Yankee Magazine named Waypoint as the top destination for Modern Seafood in the 2017 Best of New England awards and in May 2017, Waypoint was recognized as one of Food and Wine Magazine’s “Best New Restaurants of the Year”.
