Harvest celebrates the modern New England table. Executive Chef Mary Dumont presents contemporary New England cuisine focused on the region's freshest ingredients.

Tucked along a cobblestone pathway in the heart of Harvard Square, Harvest provides a welcome respite from the fast-paced world outside. Inside, the combination of soothing earth tones, supple banquettes, dark woods and pastoral art create an air of understated elegance. The open kitchen, spacious bar, and fireside dining complete the comfortable interior. Graceful linden trees offer shade to the Garden Terrace, the private garden café that boasts fireside dining, blooming flower boxes, and heaters for the chilly nights of spring and fall.
