Cambridge’s Waypoint could have exceeded our expectations with its beverage program alone, but even 20 types of absinthe along with rum, mezcal, agave, sherry, and gin stand second to the coastal-inspired seafood menu. The raw bar is complete with such maritime gems as smoked and salted peel-n-eat shrimp, while hot dishes include pizza, pasta, roasts, and small plates. Seafood is incorporated in unconventional ways wherever possible, from the squid ink bread and smoked whitefish pizza to the fish-shaped neon signs that decorate Waypoint’s walls.
Chef Michael Scelfo of sister restaurant Alden & Harlow brings another dining destination to Cambridge with the coastal-inspired Waypoint. Decked out with modern decor—from the light fixtures to the booth seating—Waypoint offers a beautiful backdrop as your dishes make their way over to you. Pick from raw bar favorites; pizza and pasta options; and if you’re feeling fancy, add something for their selection of caviar into the mix.
