That’s Ali (our awesome catering coordinator). In June, after a year of pushing our catering program to new heights, she’s moving to a different department in Clover, which means we’re hiring for a pretty amazing role. For the right person, this could be one of the most exciting job openings in the Boston area right now. Here’s the application. Deadline to apply is May 15. Spread the word. We’ll choose the best of the best for in-person interviews.


Clover is a fast-growing empire of restaurants in Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, Watertown, and Burlington, MA (with our sights set on national presence) — and we’re holding auditions for a key member of our corporate team.

The Catering and Events Manager will be responsible for booking and executing world class catering events with the local, seasonal, ever-changing menu that we’ve become famous for, and also planning events that are open to the public, including coffee tastings, beer launches, kids days, and cooking classes.

-Interface between chefs, clients, and managers to create catering packages for Clover presence at weddings, office parks, and cultural events (last week we catered the Boston Marathon!)
-Manage pickup and delivery orders from the 7 Clover food trucks and 5 restaurants (this week we’re catering a Hackathon at MIT)
-Rent out portions of Clover restaurants for private parties (last week we hosted Yo Yo Ma!)
-Plan and host coffee tastings, beer launches, kids days, and cooking classes
-Join weekly food development meetings with Clover chefs where you’ll learn about our revolutionary sourcing practices and techniques

-To apply, you must have at least 2 years experience working in a supervisory role in catering sales, management, or events-planning at a fine dining or quick-service food establishment. Culinary school or experience working in a restaurant kitchen is a plus, but not required.

-A self-starter, someone who will aggressively go after opportunities
-Someone who will pay meticulous attention to quality of customer experience
-An excellent written and verbal communicator

-The role is competitively paid, full time, based partially on an hourly wage and partially on commission. You earn based on your skills at booking events so there’s no limit to your salary. To give you an idea of what’s possible, this month our current catering manager will earn an equivalent to a 50k yearly salary.

-We use fine-dining techniques to celebrate locally sourced food at prices that everyone can enjoy. Since opening in 2008, we’ve garnered accolades from The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Eater National, and the Food Network. Our most important critics are our regular customers who line up to eat with us every day. Read more about our adventures and our catering program at our website.

I’m writing to share some news: we’ve decided to permanently close CloverROW, our outpost in the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville. The closure of this restaurant is part of the whole company’s focus on reaching financial sustainability and positioning us for future growth. These decisions are really hard, but they’re necessary steps for us to simplify Clover. And, happily, all the amazing staff at CloverROW, including the manager Joe, will be able to move into other Clover restaurants. The math is straightforward…

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. We will be closed Thursday 11/23 at all locations. For our kitchen team, it will be a good chance to rest after prepping a ton of Brussels casseroles for our Thanksgiving Box : ) As for the days surrounding Thanksgiving, we’ll be open normal hours, except for CloverFIN (Financial District) and CloverHSC (Harvard Science Center) which will be closed tomorrow and Friday. CloverHSQ (Harvard Square) will be closing early (at 8pm) tomorrow.

I’m not a big believer in multitasking (which, in my experience, is doing a bunch of things simultaneously and badly.) But there’s a lot going on at Clover right now, so I had to break my No Multitasking Rule on Wednesday. I asked Michele and Greg on our Finance team if they’d mind if I took myself off video during a meeting to review Accounts Payable. “I have to draw a cartoon Delicata Squash,” I explained, reasonably.

Some of you have been asking for a sides-only box – and it’s true, sides are the best part, aren’t they? We’re making a limited number of boxes with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and King Brussels’ Casserole. Each Sides Box serves 6-8 people and can be delivered to your door for 11/21 or 11/22.

The moment you’ve waited for is here. Western Mass Brussels sprouts are back in the restaurants, which means the King himself has landed! What’s on this glorious sandwich and why is it the King of all seasonal sandwiches? A dijon-mayo spread, smoked Grafton cheddar, fried Brussels tossed with za’atar (a Middle Eastern spice blend), pickled red cabbage, and toasted hazelnuts.

On Friday we had a company meeting with all our leadership to talk about a decision we’ve made about the future of Clover. We are all focused on putting Clover on solid financial footing so we can continue to make the food you love for many years to come. COVID changed everything for restaurants like us. The way we eat, drink, work, and get together has shifted substantially and, while Clover has seen a steady recovery in sales…

Julia here. Today, October 29, is Clover’s birthday! 15 years of perfect pita, crispy chickpea fritters, countless sandwiches that cycle with the seasons, and of course the occasional birthday cupcake. How lucky are we? Although I’ve been working at Clover for a year and a half, this was my first week as CEO. I’m excited and honored to be stepping into this role. I’ve been a Clover enthusiast for a long time – since my first taste of a Blue Oyster Mushroom sandwich as a grad student in 2013. As COO and now as CEO…

If you stop by tomorrow (Friday 10/27) around 11am, you might be treated to a bit of Clover history in the form of a carrot cupcake with buttercream frosting. One per paying customer, while they last! And they may not last long : )

A bunch of you have been asking, and yes, we are doing a Thanksgiving Box menu again this year, with all the favorites from years past – Hubbard Squash glazed with maple-Sriracha butter, mashed potatoes, gravy, Ayr’s dad’s walnut-mushroom patè, stuffing – there’s even a limited run of Petsi pies.

I’ve recently asked somebody who believes in Clover as much as I do to step into the CEO role. Julia Wrin Piper has been Clover’s COO for the past 18 months and will take over running the company day-to-day. I’ll be shifting my efforts to provide support for Julia and the team, work on growth opportunities, and pursue partnerships that will amplify Clover’s mission. I’ll remain a member of the Board of Directors and active as an advisor and mentor. Clover is facing a potent mix of opportunity and challenge right now and I know Julia is exactly the right person to lead the team through these twists and turns.

On 10/29 Clover will turn 15 years old. It’s been 15 years since we first pulled up a tiny white food truck to the MIT campus in hopes of testing a menu that could make a dent in global warming. Since then we’ve supported so many local farmers; had tons of adventures on board trucks and restaurants; and met tons of wonderful customers. And most of all we’ve made food. Lots and lots of food. In honor of our 15th birthday, we sent out a survey asking you about your favorite LONG-LOST MENU ITEMS. We’ve picked the top results and we’re going to bring them back for one day only – in the form of a Birthday Meal Box!
