A graduate of Boston’s food-truck scene, Clover started in 2008 with extremely popular trucks serving vegetarian and vegan fare to MIT students and staff (its founder is an MIT alum), and now has 12 brick-and-mortar locations throughout the Boston, Cambridge, and nearby suburbs. (Check website for other locations.) Standouts include its egg and eggplant sandwich, French fries with rosemary, and mezze platter of vegetables. There’s an appealing selection of hot and iced teas, coffees, and fresh juices. Bonus: The restaurant is certified Kosher.
