JULY 6 POP-UP: ONE NIGHT/ TWELVE COURSES AT METHUSELAH'S IN PITTSFIELD
Recent Tufts graduate Theo Friedman was featured in the Boston Globe for his passion for sustainable menus. He's worked with the highly respected chef Bjorn Somlo at Nudel in the Berkshires, who  is quoted in the Globe as stating, "Coming to a restaurant where we work only with what is locally available is very different than working in New York, but Friedman was completely on board ... He has humility and an eagerness to put in a good day’s work, combined with thoughtfulness and compassion, and that’s rare."
