Clover Food Lab

Kimlee’s whoopie pie development

  Kimlee runs prep at Harvard Square. She’s been doing an amazing job. I believe that food tastes great when it’s made with love. Some of you may think that sounds cheesy when you read that, but I’m dead serious. There are so many minute decisions you make when you’re working with food, tiny little […]


Brookline Mezze Experiment

We’re trying to figure out what Clover would look like inside of Whole Foods. Our friends there approached us early last summer to consider partnering on some exciting ideas. You may remember we hired IDEO a month or so ago to help with packaging. Now we’re tackling the customer experience. And we’re Clover, so that […]


Sam S. helped bring Clover to Alewife

  Meet Sam. I just searched my inbox and found a message from him dated September 2011. But I think he first reached out to us earlier than that. Sam works in the Alewife area (I presume) and thought we should have a truck out there. I thought it was a great idea, but wanted […]


Fireball thwarts Alewife day 1

I mean she’s actually going to have a physical reaction. I’m wondering if there’s anything I’ve done at Clover that’s made people more happy than that sandwich. […]



  I wrote a post about the Newsome building on H St. NW the other day that was picked up by PoPville and others and the resulting comments have been amazingly helpful. Thanks everybody. So I reached out to Dan (Prince of Petworth) to ask if we could post regularly on PoPville during the course […]


Meet the Brewer: Ben Anhant with Element Plasma Sake IPA

Element Beer is from Miller’s Falls, Massachusetts. Ben and Dan wanted to create a brewery that would fuse styles together, and create totally new styles. Last year we featured Element’s Red Giant and we’ve been dying to see what Ben and Dan have come up with next. Next Thursday, Element returns to Clover with a […]
