by | Nov 18, 2020 | Dirty Water News, Food and Drink

Restaurant veteran Daniel Roughan’s latest venture SOURCE Restaurant is bringing his gastro pub and pizza bar with a modern and sustainable twist to Cambridge starting this Saturday, November 21st at 4pm.

The Harvard Square space boasts a rustic feel with modern touches and features the original exposed brick from the first Cambridge Fire Station, Cambridge Engine 1. Commercial sized double hung windows offer window seating where guests can enjoy prime people watching with a pint.
SOURCE will be one of the first restaurants in the region to incorporate the I-Wave air purification system within their HVAC, proven to eliminate multiple airborne pathogens including COVID-19, making their air some of the cleanest in the country.

In the kitchen, Chef Brian Kevorkian brings over 25 years of culinary exceptionalism to SOURCE’s hyper-seasonal menu, which will feature rotating custom wood fired pizzas, small plates, pastas, entrees, and homemade desserts. 90% of the food and beverage menus will be sourced from within 100 miles of the restaurant, including local breweries such as Nightshift, Aeronaut, and Idle Hands and distillers such as Bully Boy, Crooked Oak, and Short Path. The cocktail menu contains twists on classics as well as large batch drinks called “The Vessels” for sharing.

In addition to their fresh in-house menu, SOURCE’s takeout offerings include Game Day Party Packs during Patriots games featuring combinations of pizza, wings, pasta, salad and more, and DIY Pizza Kits that allow customers to choose their dough and cheese preferences, as well as an array of toppings to work with.
SOURCE will be open 7 days a week, offering takeout and delivery from 11:30 AM to 10 PM and dining-in service from 4 PM to 11PM. Click here to learn more or view the full menu.
