A rep for Todd English has issued a statement from the chef to Grub Street insisting that any whisperings about his flagship restaurant closing simply aren't true, calling them an "April Fool's Day rumor." Statement ahead.
In response to the April fools day rumor that Olives in Charlestown is closing, I want to reassure our customers and let everyone know that Olives is most certainly not closing. We are open for business and Chef James Klewin and our entire staff are looking forward to welcoming all our loyal customers. So, come by for a drink, dinner or plan your next special event in our newly redesigned dining room. We look forward to seeing you.
