About UpperWest

UpperWest is a cozy neighborhood spot offering a simple menu of Spanish and Italian inspired small plates and a full bar, with Specials like pastas that are hand made each day by Chef and Owner Kim Courtney. Our Old World wine list offers around 20 selections by the glass or bottle, and we have a growing selection of Whiskey and Amari.

UpperWest is also a venue for the local community to enjoy creative and educational food and drink experiences, as well as private events.

We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday evenings from 6pm (even during events), and generally hold private events on Sundays and Mondays. 

Our menu changes regularly, and typically includes a Cheese Tasting Board, Charcuterie, small plates, and rotating specials like hand made pastas (which are limited in quantity each night).


We are located in a green house at 1 Cedar Street (at Cedar Street and Massachusetts Avenue) in North Cambridge, next to the Community Bike/Walking Path. Our building is also the home of the United American Veterans. Please walk down the driveway to the back entrance, and we are located in the basement.
