The Four Stages of Our Relationship with Todd English
What a long, strange trip it’s been, Todd. It started as a crush, ballooned into a full-blown love affair, but then fizzled out from there. Here, a look back at our 20+ year relationship with Chef Todd English.
Where we first fell in love with you, with Olives, and with your hot, Mediterranean cooking.
Best of Boston, New Restaurant: Olives, 67 Main Street, Charlestown. Todd and Olivia English couldn’t have done it better. The meats and fish from the wood-fired grill and oven are fabulous. The decor is warm and sunny Mediterranean. And the prices allow you to go once a week.
Okay, you won us over (we could never resist that charm). So we were willing to give you one more shot…
2011: THE BREAKUP
…until your latest fiascos sealed our fate once and for all. Lesson learned: shame on us. It’s over, Todd.
And this time, it’s for good.
