Clover Newton will open on July 9!


Update: due to Tropical Storm Elsa, our Grand Opening has been rescheduled to Friday July 16 and Saturday July 17! All other details remain the same.

What does a chickpea fritter taste like in Newtonville? Be the first to find out on July 9 and 10!

Originally we’d been hoping to do a soft open tomorrow (July 1) but we had some unexpected permitting delays (our own fault, the Town of Newton has been amazing). If you poke your head in, we’re happy to give you a tour (or check out this video tour Ayr made last week), just no food quite yet.

However, we’d love to invite you and all your friends to join us for our grand opening in Newton!

Pay What You Want Weekend
& Ribbon Cutting with Mayor Fuller

July 9 and 10 at CloverNTV
845 Washington St, Newtonville

~all proceeds benefiting the Newton Schools Foundation~

From 11am-2pm each day, come to CloverNTV and pay anything you want for lunch ($1, $100, $1000: really, whatever you want!). And if the thought of a 80 cent (or $80) chickpea fritter doesn’t excite you, we’ll also have prizes for the first 20 people in line each day 😲

Here’s the best part. We are going to donate ALL PROCEEDS (not just profits) from Pay What You Want Day to the Newton Schools Foundation, a nonprofit that gives grants to Newton public school teachers that they can use for their classrooms.

After the hard year that our teachers have had, we wanted to give back to them in a big way, so we reached out to Diane and her team at NSF and partnered with them for our grand opening. Kev and Jasper are ready to make a lot of sandwiches, but we’re going to need your help to buy them! 

We’re trying to raise 5k on July 9 and 10.

So if you’re a student, parent, former student, or teacher enjoying a much-needed summer vacation, or you just love good food, spread the word!

We’re honored to be kicking things off on Friday at 10:30am with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Fuller. I heard George Howell will be making an appearance to christen his new espresso bar inside of CloverNTV (and to check out the beautiful plants growing on premises). We’ll have panelle sandwiches, rhubarb agua fresca, some new desserts and the full Clover menu on deck.

So tell everyone you know, come help us get used to our new digs, meet Kev and his team, taste food that’s good for you and good for the planet, maybe win some prizes, and let’s raise some cash for our hardworking public school teachers!!! 

RSVP not required, but feel free to join the Facebook event to get it on your calendar:

Schedule of events:

  • Fri 7/9, 10:30am: Ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Fuller
  • Grand opening at 11am!
  • Pay What You Want 11am-2pm both Friday and Saturday
    • Limit 1 main dish + side + drink per person per day, while supplies last
  • Regular business hours (7am-8pm daily) after that!

The Pizza Friday Box gave us an idea: calzones! Ayr has been making these at his house and texting us photos. They’re big and saucy and so good. Basically a stuffed pizza/turnover situation with origins in 17th century Naples.

As you might know, we love feedback. Survey Day is a tradition that harkens back to the first days of the food truck, over 10 years ago. If you got a card in line today at Clover, or if you ordered on the app today, click here to take the survey. Huge thanks for helping us improve.

Thanks all who joined for the first public food dev meeting after Covid. Phil did a great job pulling it all together. If you’re a customer, farmer, vendor (or Clover staff member) reading this, you are invited to Food Dev! These happen Thursday afternoons at the HUB and they’re where all new food ideas are born. Just make sure to sign up – spots are limited.

House-made carrot lox, hearty vegetable stews with bread and pickles, Tunisian breakfast bowls, a pizza party kit, and a dream of snow, all in one box. Our Snowed In Box is back. This was Greg’s idea back in 2020. He thought it would be cool to make a box that was equally whether eaten after snowboarding or cozied up on the couch watching a movie.

We’ve been getting a lot of requests for the ability to gift a friend Clover Meal Boxes. After a lot of late night tech sessions, we have a way to do this! Yay! I’ve been looking and seeing a few of you have started to discover this feature and are starting to gift away. So cool to see.

If you’re a weekly meal box subscriber, you may have noticed way fewer plastic containers in your deliveries recently.When we started the program, we were in the pandemic, new to this whole home delivery thing, and a big concern was making sure that nothing spilled inside the boxes. So we relied on post-consumer recycled containers (aka plastic deli containers) for a lot of the items.

We’ve been getting back into the merch game. First up: squash shirts. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the diversity of the squash world. Although butternut is probably the squash you see most in the grocery store, there are actually over 100 types of squash, all with their own patterns, colors, and textures.

The Bridgewater is back!! This is probably the most requested sandwich on our menu. Michelle who runs our social media says she reliably gets one message per week asking when it will return. In 2015, Paul and Bryan came up with this sandwich as an homage to the jalapeño poppers at The Charlie Horse, a now-closed tavern in their hometown of Bridgewater, MA.

I love the holidays. I love the lights, I love the traditions, I love ornaments and pine needles all over the floor.  I love the movies (“Muppet Christmas Carol”) and the books (“A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”) I love the good songs, I love the schlocky songs (if you’ve never heard “Suzy Snowflake” or “Dominic the Donkey”, stop reading right now and click through.)

It was inevitable. Our meal box program had to find its way into restaurants at some point. A bunch of you have been asking if we can sell “on demand” meal boxes in our restaurants – for those times when you have last-minute dinner guests or forgot to subscribe by the deadline. So we’ve been easing into the process of combining one part of Clover with another.

Brussels Sprouts are extra sweet this time of year, and King Brussels, in his infinite wisdom, has cooked up a Brussels Week in our meal boxes. Every single subscription box will contain a recipe inspired by brussels! This is the first time we’ve explored a seasonal theme across our entire lineup and we’re excited to dive in.

This was Jane’s last week at Clover. We’re wishing her the best in her next steps (but also not so secretly hoping she comes back!)
