It was an excellent brunch. Make your own Bloody Mary and mimosas bar. Bloody Mary,s are a little to large and heavy on ice. Menu is got little of something from breakfast and lunch. Excellent bread for sharing

Food is good, not great (chicken pretty tasteless, though nicely soft and juicy). Ambience feels cold: big industrial room, large grey walls without much ornament, dim lighting at night, felt sparse and empty. Service was attentive and friendly, but unobtrusive; staff was the best feature of the place. Cost was appropriate to much better food. Will not return.

Not sure why this MIT neighborhood restaurant wasn’t packed for brunch. Large restaurant, smart appearance, high ceiling, lots of sun, and attentive staff. In addition to a nicely rounded brunch menu, they had a Danish/Bread bar and a Bloody Mary bar.

Had dinner at Catalyst with a large group of business colleagues. We enjoyed relaxing at the bar and then having plenty of good food at a large table.
Catalyst is a modern restaurant, with a menu that offers a range of primary ingredients, including vegetarian, each presented in a distinct and interesting manner with sides and sauces. For appetizers, we shared a variety of different ones and while they varied in quality, they were all good and some were excellent. If memory serves, my favorite was the chicken liver pate. For main dish, we each went our own way, and I wound up selecting the beef dish. It was very good - the meat tender and well cooked - and the sides were fitting. We also had some fries with aioli around and those were fantastic.
Service was fine throughout. Friendly bartender handled drink recommendations and requests before dinner and the waitstaff were helpful and accommodating.
The ambiance of the restaurant is very modern - fairly large open space with high ceilings and its share of steel and glass - but it is offset by both rough and warm wood mixed in, making it quite comfortable.
