JUNE 13 ALPHA ST KITCHEN & BAR, CAMBRIDGE
This restaurant, which we have visited several times, is located in the historic National Hotel in the heart of Cambridge, adjacent to the Town Hall & overlooking the Tower Clock. The original hotel, the Alpha Hotel, built in 1886, was destroyed by fire in 1912. the current version of the National Hotel ("The Nash" to locals) was originally built in 1913 &, with a few modifications over the decades has retained its elegant art-deco style.The quiet elegance & generus dimensions of the building enhance the contemporary, relaxed style of the restaurant
Alpha Street Kitchen & Bar carries on the tradition of a welcoming place to meet at any time of the day.
