New American Restaurant
$$$
“My favorite restaurant in Harvard Square. Great seasonal ingredients and amazing cocktails. Ask for the "Secret Burger" or even the "Super Secret Burger". They only make 30 or so a night though - so go early if you want to catch one.”

New American Restaurant
$$
“They've got an excellent bar and food menu. Not a huge dinner menu but we've enjoyed everything we've ever had. Offerings tend more toward the decadent side than light/healthy fare. If buffalo style brussel sprouts (one of our favorite items) sounds like something you'd like, take a look at their menu. The space gets crowded, so if you want to sit quickly go early. It also can get pretty loud, so if you're looking for a quiet dining experience, you might want to look elsewhere. ”

Café

“Definitely the best breakfast spot in Cambridge. If you arrive before 10am you shouldn't have to wait too long. After 10am you might have a 30-60 minute wait. Put your name in and go exploring - definitely worth it! Lemon ricotta pancakes are amazing.”
