The First Printer Restaurant cover
Description You can find us in Harvard Square, just steps from the Red Line, on the site where Stephen Daye, the first printer in British America, lived. First Printer Restaurant offers an elegant yet simple gastropub featuring American classics, fresh New England seafood and yummy vegetarian options. The restaurant is decorated with antique type cases, printing paraphernalia and newspapers dating back 300 years. Our dining room seats 95 and includes many handcrafted mahogany booths, an 18 seat full bar and a private gathering room in a converted bank vault. Please check out our ever-evolving menus at www.thefirstprinter.com.

The First Printer cocktail list is comprised of 4 basic parts: Aperitifs, First Printings, Season Selections and After Dinner drinks. Aperitifs are based on the European model of before dinner drinks consisting primarily of aromatized wines and sherries. First Printings are vintage cocktails that reference printed matter; e.g., The Journalist, The Correspondent, The New Yorker and The Godfather and are listed within the cocktail guidebook where the recipe was first printed. The Journalist, for instance, is from The Savoy Cocktail Book published in London in 1930. The last 2 parts are Seasonal Drinks created by Brother Cleve and an After Dinner listing of sweet and/or dessert drinks. Please see website for current list.

Wine List
We feature an eclectic, conservatively priced international wine collection with many organic, biodynamic and sustainably grown wine makers. Please see website for current list.

Beer List
Our List includes 10 beers on tap and over 30 different bottles, featuring mostly craft beer like Cambridge’s own Pretty Things, Somerville’s Slumbrew and West Coast favorite Lagunitas IPA. Please see website for current list.

Liquor List
We offer a custom cocktail list emphasizing small batch whiskeys and vodkas from around the world. Please see website for current list.
