In 2016, Michael Scelfo opened his second restaurant Waypoint in Harvard Square. The menu 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.” And in 2017, Food & Wine magazine named Waypoint one of their “Best New Restaurants.”
In fall 2018, Scelfo will open The Longfellow Bar at Alden & Harlow above Alden & Harlow at 40 Brattle Street in Cambridge. The Longfellow Bar is a neighborhood bar and restaurant located in the historic Café Algiers in Harvard Square.
