A trustworthy tipster tells Grub Street that Todd English's flagship restaurant, Olives Charlestown, will shut down once more, this time to make way for Legal Sea Foods' Legal Test Kitchen. Sad and bizarre, if true: Olives reopened just a year ago after much anticipation (and a few delays). Maybe it's a new partnership? English does own an oyster farm, after all. We've reached out to his people, and we'll of course keep you posted. [Earlier]
