PHOTO: Todd English at Olives' Grand Reopening
Celebrety Chef Todd English was in Charlestown last night to celebrate the grand reopening of Olives.
English took to the open kitchen to prepare some of the dishes himself while a crowd of VIPs (including, for reasons we still don't understand, your Charlestown Patch editor) squeezed together around the central bar.
The dishes heavily featured olive oil—which made its way into even the night's signature cocktail.
The Grand Opening marks the end of the restaurant's long saga toward reopening, which was marked by frequent, unfufilled promises to the Boston Licensing Board that openning day was just around the corner.
