Temple Bar chef Michael Scelfo will also helm the kitchen at Russell House Tavern, according to the restaurant’s blog. Russell House is set to open this spring in the Harvard Square space that formerly housed Z-Square. Scelfo plans “quality ingredients and menu items that invoke classic America, New England fare,” but writes that his top priority is “to be mindful and respectful of Temple Bar’s style.” A substantial collection of craft beers, wines, and cocktails will accompany Scelfo’s fare. Prediction: there will be flatbreads.
