A project to bring attention to the independent restaurants, farmers, producers and chefs that we love during a time when our actions can mean the difference in the survival of a local business. When you purchase a Clover Meal Box, you’ll get a little something extra – as a gift from us and people whose work we love.
backbar – Sam Treadway – The first 120 Clover meal boxes purchased for September 22, 24, and 26 will include a bottle of El Diablo drink mixer made by our friend (and the best bartender we know) Sam Treadway at backbar in Somerville. Support Sam by ordering takeout drinks or cocktail mixers from his weekly-changing thematic menu.
