Michael Scelfo is a busy guy: His new taqueria, Naco Taco, hasn't been open for a full week yet, but the Alden & Harlow chef and restaurateur is already making moves to bring something new to Cambridge. Boston Restaurant Talk reports via a City of Cambridge licensing document that he is seeking a full alcohol license for a place potentially called Waypoint at a hearing next week.
The agenda provides a couple other details about the project first reported last month. The 145-seat restaurant seeks approval to be open for dinner seven nights a week, with brunch also being served on weekends (or, at least food service beginning at 10:30 a.m.)
Waypoint will land at 1030 Mass. Ave., between Harvard and Central Squares, in 2016, a representative previously told Eater. No details yet on what kind of fare Waypoint will offer. Earlier this year, Scelfo ruminated on some concepts he'd love to try one day, including a sandwich shop and a pizza place. "I love the idea of doing my take on ... those types of fun things to eat," he said.
Waypoint will have its licensing hearing on Tuesday, May 19.
