new Todd English restaurant?

  • g

A co-worker told me that there's a new Todd English restaurant in Fanueill Hall...NOT Kingfish Hall, an even newer place.

Anyone know anything about this?

      I think Bonfire is supposed to open next month...a steak house with the beef from different Argentina as well as American.

    2. No, you're right Gracie. Todd English is opening Bonfire, but he also opened a new restaurant across from Kingfish Hall. It's called Rustic Kitchen. I haven't been there yet but it's described in Stuff@Night as "ethnic and straightforward - brick-oveny and unfussy - with panini, salads, polenta and pastas, roasts and casseroles. It's more Italian than not, but eclectic, with hummus and flatbreads, chicken pot pie, and fisherman's stew."

      Whew! How many restaurants does that make?

          This is the most recent comments. I still haven't been but will go soon. If you go, I'd like to hear your thoughts.


      2. Who cares about Todd English? In all honesty he hasn't pulled off anything new and inventive in years. That slanted open pit fish grill at Kingfish is nothing but a char your fish,malfunctioning conversation starter, and I mean char.

          I have to pause just a moment to say thanks... two thumbs up. Really, the Emperor is not wearing clothes. Thanks for noticing.
