Alden & Harlow is looking for bartenders to join their dedicated bar team. Bar Manager Drexel Axeloons and Chef Michael Scelfo work closely with local farms and markets for both the food and beverage menus to reflect seasonality and fresh ingredients. This 170 seat restaurant has a 30-seat bar that has gained a number of positive accolades since opening in Jan 2014, including 2015's Best Bar Program from Boston Magazine and more recently the inclusion on Condé Nast Traveler's list of "The Best Restaurants in the World." The cocktail program is ingredient-driven, focusing on the representation of seasonal ingredients and house-made components. We are looking for people who are interested in learning in their environment and being challenged while being part of something special. Applicants should send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org

Part of Michael Scelfo Restaurants
For much-loved and -lauded chef Michael Scelfo, Alden & Harlow, is an incredibly personal endeavor. The subterranean restaurant, his first solo venture, opened in the Brattle Street spot that housed Casablanca for fifty years in early 2014. Designed to recreate the vibe in Scelfo’s home kitchen, the dining room features vintage pieces, used and worn cookbooks, kids' artwork and maple butcher-block tabletops that all come together to create a warm and cozy dining experience.
The menu at Alden & Harlow also takes inspiration from the humble, unpretentious food that Scelfo prepares for friends and family when he’s cooking at home. While there are larger format plates available, the offerings mostly defy categorization as appetizer or entrée. The seasonal small plates are perfectly shareable and trying a few different menu items is encouraged.
The bar program at Alden & Harlow reflects the restaurant’s overall philosophy with market-driven drinks and house-made infusions and syrups. The team has culled a small but impactful list of whiskeys, as well as a small but highly curated beer list. And the wine list has plenty of crowd-pleasing favorites and harder-to-find gems.
