From Good Stock: Tracing Boston’s culinary heritage, by Alison Arnett, December 26, 1993
"In the beginning there was the Harvest. Its kitchen begat Jimmy Burke, of the Tuscan Grill; Frank McClelland, of L'Espalier; and Chris Schlesinger, of The Blue Room. Or maybe it was the brief fling at the Orson Welles, whence came Odette Bery's Turtle Cafe and then Another Season... Odette Bery remembers 1968 at the Orson Welles, in Cambridge, where she and Joyce della Chiesa shook things up by offering a more casual and experimental style. Chris Schlesinger remembers the Harvest a decade later, when he was hired for $4.25 an hour by Frank McClelland, then sous-chef. Jimmy Burke was the chef, and nouvelle cuisine was just hitting the United States. 'We had carte blanche to order anything we wanted,' Schlesinger says."
