    Thats good news for FTL, just wish he was looking at Miami too... I love Bonfire in Boston and Olives in Vegas at the Bellagio is a nice spot too.

      While I am sure, Blind Mind, you have fond memories of Todd English's restaurants in Boston, etc. before he became a "brand" now he is just mailing it in. The Olives at the W in Union Square, NYC is abysmal. And Tuscany at the Mohegan Sun is awful. Now I read above he is putting his Figs chains in Macys?? That's about all you need to know about the guy.

        Yes, very true Nikklos. I havent been to Bonfire in ages so its very possible the quality couldve gone downhill but I did enjoy Olives in Vegas. Not enough to rave about going back but it was good nonetheless. Anytime anyone goes commercial the overall experience suffers. And the Macy's thing was unnerving to hear.
