3 Reasons to Travel with Michael Scelfo

For Michael, food is all about connection. He gets intimate with his ingredients, fusses over menus like he’s about to cook for family, and curates dining experiences that make conversation easy. If you pull up a seat to eat with Michael, you can trust that you’ll leave with more than a full belly.

Personal Connections

The Scelfos are from southern Italy, and Michael still has family here. One of his early memories is learning to simmer his grandmother’s red sauce. So this trip is personal for Michael, a celebration of his own Italian roots.

Cooking with Heart

Michael views his Boston restaurants the same way he views his kitchen table: If you’re dining here, you’re family. He thinks about what his loved ones would want to taste and experience. Then he makes it for you.

Ingredients Are King

Michael emphasizes simplicity and quality when cooking. From the cuts of meat to the toppings on burgers, you can be sure you’re getting some of the best ingredients around.
