          Waypoint is the latest restaurant from Chef / Owner Michael Scelfo, that just opened in Harvard Square. As a huge fan of Alden and Harlow, I was really excited to check out his new spot which focuses on seafood and creative cocktails including a huge selection of absinthe. I went in a few weeks ago with fellow food blogger Fiona of Gourmet Pigs to check it out!

          We started with two of the cocktails made with absinthe: the finochio and absinthe cobbler. Both were delicious but I loved the cobbler, which was a little bit sweeter and a perfect combination of fall flavors.

Finochio: fennel infused gin, la muse verte absinthe, dolin genepy & amaro montenegro
Absinthe Cobbler: Tennyson Absinthe, Roasted Apple, Fennel, Amaro Montenegro & Lemon
          Next we shared several apps including the crudo of the day, roasted arctic char belly, crab and avocado, and grilled monkfish. I honestly didn't have a favorite, they were all so good. The char and monkfish were cooked perfectly, and I all of the preparations were both creative and decadent. I loved the addiiton of squid ink and caviar to several dishes.

          For our main course, we shared the whole black bass for two. It was seared with crispy skin, with tender flaky fish once you cut in. I enjoyed the corn salsa but could have eaten and enjoyed the fish without any accompaniments at all it was that good.

          My expectations were high going into Waypoint, and the meal did not disappoint. I'll definitely be back!
