Choosing day menu

5 November, 2008: We sold out of everything. I mean everything. I ladled out the last cup of cider, and that was it. We opened at noon, and were out by 1:30pm. Tomorrow you can look forward to a mushroom soup. We’ll be bringing back the herbed fries, and black bean soup. And we’re thinking of unveiling a new sandwich:… Read More

Don’t miss out on CSAs this summer!

14 May, 2021: I think the single best thing you can do for your cooking is to get access to better tasting veggies. That’s Ray of Next Barn Over in Hadley. Those radishes are spicy, sweet, and crisp. They’re one of the first things you’ll see in your CSA. I like to slice them thin and serve them with butter… Read More

Meal boxes are moving to 5 days/week!

11 May, 2021: When we launched Meal Boxes back in June, it was a way for us to re-open after the height of the pandemic. Now it’s turned into a whole business, nestled inside of Clover.

Secrets at Clover? Testing, testing, beta beta beta

10 May, 2021: You all know how we value transparency and talking openly about everything we do, even our screw ups. So writing this note feels a bit wrong to me. These aren’t exactly secrets per se, more like a skunkworks that we just haven’t talked much about. This is going to be a long-ish post but I want to… Read More

Clover x Yolélé Foods Chips!

8 May, 2021: Lucia here. My favorite restaurant in NYC is called Teranga. When I went in May 2019 I couldn’t stop talking about it, to everyone. There was this black-eyed-pea salad I dreamed about for days. And an incredible stew I later learned was Poulet Yassa, a classic Senegalese stew made with tons of caramelized onions. On every table: 3 of the best hot sauces I’d… Read More

At lunch, our PEI potatoes are cut, fried, and topped with Nashville hot… Read More

This holy grail of springtime has been absent at Clover until now

1 May, 2021: The next 200 people to order a meal box for Thursday will be getting a really special gift: ramps. How can I describe the taste of a ramp? A chef I know says: scallion meets barely-roasted garlic clove. My friend, who has a ramp tattoo on her wrist, says: sharp, green, and creamy. I say it’s like a super-concentrated leek, with a saucy story it wants… Read More
