Grab a souper hero today at lunch!

16 January, 2018: Go soups! If you click on this post you can see my little souper hero animation. You may have noticed we’re making lots of soups this winter. And while we believe all our food helps the environment, there’s something extra special about soup. We want everybody to eat more soup. Read on if you’re interested in learning… Read More

Medlar the person

13 January, 2018: Were you able to try a medlar this weekend? If not, we will hopefully have them at most locations Monday and Tuesday, but we can’t guarantee them much longer. Medlar mania is hitting Boston hard, as we realized when we got a very special visitor to CloverDTX on Friday. Fabricio, who leads up communications at CloverDTX, sent… Read More

Beer finally flows through the Longwood Medical Area starting 1/11!

13 January, 2018: Hey, Longwood. Is there any area in Boston that has fewer places to get a drink? Well, we’re about to change that. First some backstory. When we opened CloverLMA, we noticed there was NOWHERE to get a beer. Ok, there was one place. The great Punter’s Point near Northeastern — and it just closed this winter! I will miss… Read More

Press

17 June, 2009: A bunch of you have asked why we don’t make a big deal about the press we’ve been receiving, and why there hasn’t been a mention of any of it here on the website. The truth is we needed some time to sort out our conflicted emotions regarding the recent coverage. You see we actually told some… Read More

Boston loves medlars! Only 5 days to try!

12 January, 2018: Who would have thought? We launched the Medlar Sandwich yesterday. And it was a blockbuster. We sold 500 medlar sandwiches, and sampled around 500 more medlars and jam to folks who were curious. This is the type of ingredient you won’t find in most restaurants, definitely not fast food ones like ours. It’s hard to find (it… Read More

Pizza 🍕 emoji

12 January, 2018: A bunch of us were having a meeting about the Public Release of the Clover App, coming in mid-February. And we’re all thinking about ways to make the app fun to use. Like, really fun. We want to incorporate some elements of surprise, some elements of playfulness. Jane said, “You know you can text a pizza emoji… Read More

Mislabeled Medlars

23 December, 2017: You think you know everything about fruits, and then you meet a medlar. It comes into season in the winter. And it needs to “blet” (or rot, or ferment, however you want to call it) a little bit before it is yummy. For this reason, medlars have been used as metaphors (kinda inappropriate by today’s standards) by many… Read More

An Ode to the Carrot Sandwich

21 December, 2017: This is Kenny. Jenny and I invited him over to CloverHUB to taste this year’s Carrot Sandwich before it formally launches today. He’s a regular customer at CloverKND, and a grad student in chemistry at MIT. We got a very poetic letter from him through Facebook Messenger a while back asking us to bring back the Carrot Sandwich. Today… Read More

Winter at Clover

3 January, 2009: We’re not open yet. Sorry, I’m getting your notes and messages, we’ve just got to wait until it’s a bit warmer out there. Those of you who haven’t taken off for January might be noticing the truck parked there, almost teasing you. We’re still paying for the spot, and this is the best place to keep it… Read More

How does food get on the menu?

14 December, 2017: You might remember our first take at hummus bowls was a disaster. If you were a Kendall customer who tried hummus bowls back in August, sorry! Packaging, operations, communications were all a mess. We regrouped, and tested them again at CloverFIN, and it was a huge success (btw, if you’re craving those hummus bowls, they’ll likely appear… Read More

Winter Moon Roots CSAs officially SOLD OUT

14 December, 2017: We had a really incredible response to the Winter Moon Roots CSA. We had hoped we would sell 100 shares for Michael and his farm; final numbers are coming in at 300. Thanks to everyone who signed up – you’re all helping support organic farming right here in Massachusetts. The first pickup is Monday, December 18, from… Read More

Impossible Sausage Egg and Cheese Live

13 December, 2017: The Impossible meatballs have been selling like crazy. Our contractor Justin Kelly suggested we turn our attention to breakfast, asking when we were going to make a sausage egg and cheese. This is the second Impossible item we’ve been working on. That picture above was from a food planning meeting a few weeks back. We were having… Read More

Take Clover home this holiday season

6 December, 2017: A bunch of you have been asking for this, so here it is! We’re making some of our favorite soups, salads, and appetizers (like that butternut squash soup, or our yummy Hungarian cheese spread) and packing them up in larger quantities for you to bring to your holiday table this year. We’ll have 3 pickup dates, during… Read More

Coffee coffee coffee

9 January, 2009: OK, OK, OK. I hear you all. Sorry we haven’t been serving. It’s not because we don’t want to, or that we’re wimps as some of you have even suggested. We’re just super busy trying to make sure Clover becomes much more than a food truck. You may have read that we’re looking for investors. True and… Read More

Changes coming tomorrow!

6 December, 2017: That’s a Spicy Coconut Lentil soup being built at Clover Burlington the other week. We’re rolling out a few changes to the menu tomorrow. We’re hoping they make you love Clover more! If you stop by, help cheer on the crew. They’re adjusting to a lot of changes (where to put things, what time to prep things.)… Read More
