Catalyst Restaurant is a reflection of Chef/Owner William Kovel’s passion for simple food delivered with warm service in a modern environment.


Catalyst Restaurant is the culmination of Chef/Owner William Kovel’s culinary experiences in award-winning restaurants includingJardinière, Orerry and Aujourd'hui at Four Seasons Boston Hotel. The Catalyst dining experience centers on bright, simple food created from the season’s freshest local ingredients, serious French technique and an appreciation for the details that go into our guest's experience.

Catalyst Restaurant opened in 2011 as one of the pioneer businesses in Technology Square near the MIT Campus in Cambridge, MA. Since that time, an influx of start-ups and big companies that have made Catalyst a hub for business lunches, after-work gatherings and private dining.

Reclaimed barn board, hand-blown glass light fixtures and a two-way fireplace give the large restaurant a comfortable, intimate environment. The chef’s dining room has views of the semi-open kitchen and the atrium dining room takes full advantage of the sweeping floor to ceiling windows.
