New Adventure meal kits

You may have tried our Weekend Adventure Box. Fireside s’mores, cornbread and chili and hot dogs. Maybe you’ve taken it bike-camping like one of our customers (so cool). Or maybe you’ve used it to stay inside and avoid ordering pizza on one of these gray and cloudy days we’ve been having.

The Weekend Adventure Box has been so popular that it’s inspired a fleet of kits! This new Adventure Category will take you everywhere you need to go this summer. They’re easy to pop in the trunk of the car (easy on the wallet too). They’re destined for craggy shorelines and docks, grass under bare feet, reunions with friends and family, and most importantly NOT heating up your kitchen on days when we return to muggy and 90-degree humidity.

Everything in the new Weekend Adventure category will be available for pickup at 1075 Cambridge St, or home delivery to the Greater Boston Area on Thursdays and Fridays (and to the Cape on Fridays!) Plus delivery is free for orders over $60!

So ask yourself, when 5pm on Friday rolls around, are you beach, brunch, picnic or backyard?

The Beach Kit
You arrive at the beach and unpack tofu egg salad sandwiches with crisp pickles and lettuce. You dip fresh local berries in house vanilla sugar. While reading and watching the surfers do their thing, you’re dipping veggie chips into silky hummus. But beware of the seagulls! They love Clover potato salad. Kit includes compostable cutlery and our staff’s list of favorite New England beaches. 

The Brunch Kit
People are coming over Sunday! You’re excited to see everyone again after a long winter of quarantine, but what will you make? Brunch Kit to the rescue! The carrot lox Chris has become famous for, plus Forge bagels, cashew cream cheese, capers, and tomatoes; scoop-and-bake blueberry muffins; everything you need to make granola parfaits with seasonal fruit (right now rhubarb, fingers crossed for peaches soon); and orange juice for making mimosas. Just ask your friends to pick up a dry sparkling wine and you’re all set! Also includes some bonus recipes for brunch hosting.

The Backyard Kit
You’ve been invited to the neighbor’s for a grill-out. But what to bring? The Backyard Kit has the beginnings of a Mediterranean meal—our famous marinated veg, a trio of spreads, and just-baked pita. The balsamic-marinated mushrooms and lemon-marinated summer veggies are ready to hit the grill (or the oven, or griddle). Pair them with 3 of our most popular spreads: romesco, silky hummus, and sunflower seed pesto, plus Clover pita, and recipe ideas for turning this kit into a meal for a crowd. 

The Picnic Kit 
When it’s time for that big declaration, nothing says “I love you” like Clover romesco. A romantic date for two starts with spreads and pita, continues with no-cook farm bowls with seasonal produce, and ends with coconut pecan blondies and a seasonal soda that you’ll mix right at the picnic. We’ll send everything you need, including a list of unusual places to picnic around town (including a bridge made of flowers). You just bring the ice, the picnic blanket, and some courage.  

PS: Changes are happening in our Build Your Own menu too! Breakfast items are now available a-la-carte (hello Classic Breakfast Sandwich!) and we’ve also got a new Weeknight Favorites Box

What would we serve if we had all of you over for Christmas dinner? This (epic) box, available only for Christmas, is an homage to the holiday traditions of our Clover staff. And like all Clover boxes, it supports our hardworking Massachusetts farmers, millers, bakers, and cheesemakers. This box is designed to feed you and keep you properly festive throughout a week with different meals/snacks, and can also be laid out all together on a holiday table as one big feast.

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:

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…

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. Free delivery to your door if you’re within 30 miles of us. Click here to reserve yours.

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.
