Todd English Seeks Manager Role for Charlestown Eatery

The Boston Herald reports that Olives owner Todd English, who has been taking some flak for focusing onhis out-of-state eateries, may be headed back to the kitchen at Olives.

The Boston Licensing Board recently approved English’s request to be named manager of the shuttered Charlestown eatery. He would replace his ex-wife, Olivia, on the Olives paperwork.The celebrity chef’s flagship restaurant has been closed for nearly a year after a grease fire gutted the kitchen.

Recently, the city gave English 45 days to show that some progress is being made to reopen the restaurant or risk losing the liquor license.
