    Chef Michael Scelfo’s career path has never been a linear one – twists, turns and many travels in between have brought him to this moment. His second restaurant project, Waypoint signals a natural next step along his culinary journey. The menu reflects his forward-thinking approach to coastally-inspired fare - marrying his time spent along the Atlantic and Pacific shores.

    At his award-winning Alden & Harlow, he extended the concept of the domestic kitchen table into his first owned and operated restaurant. Located in the iconic Casablanca restaurant space in Cambridge, Alden & Harlow pays homage to its chef’s roots by making each ingredient shine, and ultimately, cooking from his heart. In September 2016, Conde Nast Traveler named Alden & Harlow one of the “Best Restaurants in the World.” In 2016, the James Beard Foundation honored him as a semifinalist for Best Chef Northeast. In 2016, Boston magazine honored Alden & Harlow with Best Restaurant: General Excellence.

    In his Boston Globe review, Mat Schaffer wrote about Waypoint that, “…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.” And in 2017, Food & Wine magazine named Waypoint one of their “Best New Restaurants.”

    In 2018, Scelfo will open The Longfellow Bar at Alden & Harlow above Alden & Harlow at 40 Brattle Street in Cambridge.
