Littleburg is scrumptious! Had our first taste at a pop up in Arlington and been hooked since.

My wife and I had the New Year's Eve meal package, and it was genuinely a bright moment during the COVID winter. I'm so excited to see this next step for Littleburg!

About Littleburg

Graham Boswell and the Littleburg team don't make vegan food that imitates non-vegan food. They make novel, powerfully flavored food with its roots in the local earth and its heartbeat echoing in the beloved cuisines of Greece, Turkey, Morocco, Israel, and beyond.

Previously without permanent walls or food truck wheels, Littleburg presented its finely tuned menus at pop-ups in breweries, coffee shops and fine dining restaurants all over the Boston area. The Littleburg team has always displayed the best seasonal and locally sourced food in a flurry of tantalizing, ephemeral evenings.

In March of 2020 with the pandemic affecting us all, Littleburg pivoted and launched a prepared meal service to better serve the community. Graham and his kitchen staff cook a fresh menu of 14-18 mains, sides, sweets, and provisions each week. The comfort Littleburg brought into homes across the Greater Boston area in 2020 is now making things permanent in Somerville in 2021.

With the new Union Square location, the Littleburg team will offer a takeout service 6 nights a week with their freshest, most innovative cooking to date. Don't worry, there will be brunch too...

A Note From Graham, owner of Littleburg

I started Littleburg with a vision of a different type of vegan cooking - one that never compromises deliciousness while still upholding our core values. Three years later, I'm still trying to bring it all into focus, but we're getting closer every day.

The pop-up model allowed me to experiment in a low-stakes way with serving the food I envisioned, food that I didn't yet see in the Boston scene. That process of picturing something and bringing it to life is a thrill, and it's your support that has allowed me to do that. But it's never just been about the food. Great hospitality is the feeling that you're being cared for, and that's what I've always aspired to.

I never thought I would own a prepared meal delivery service - the best food is cooked and enjoyed in the same moment. When everything shut down last year, it was difficult to lose the connection that comes from serving our guests delicious food to enjoy right away. But I discovered that delivery allowed us to expand our reach, and it's been an absolute privilege to be a part of our customers' lives each week. We've built a strong business that will serve as the foundation for our next phase.

The new space is a large catering kitchen in a converted auto garage. The kitchen facility will allow us to continue serving the greater Boston community with our meal delivery service, while we build the restaurant of our dreams.

Like everything Littleburg, we'll build it from the ground up by starting small and investing more as we grow. So we're starting with a takeout counter in addition to our prepared meal delivery service. Once we've tested the concept in the new space, we plan to expand by building a beautiful, intimate dining room.

We're fortunate to have found a space with much of the costly kitchen infrastructure already in place. That means we can get up and running quickly and without the huge price tag that comes with a restaurant build out. We plan to be open for takeout this summer.

The funding that our supporters provide will help us acquire some additional key equipment, helping us streamline our operations while continuing to do everything from scratch - including our amazing bread.

I grew Littleburg from the ground up with savings scraped together working as a low-level restaurant cook. I opened our business bank account with just $400. Keeping things "too small to fail" has allowed me to stay true to my integrity and vision. And now it's time to take a big leap of faith… I'd be grateful if you'd join me on the journey.
