  1. Jeremy Sewall is consulting from what I have heard.

      Consulting means "not leaving Lineage", I guess.

          I doubt it. Jeremy was invloved with the whole Commonwealth/Great Bay venture at the beginning so maybe they are bringing him back to revamp things at Eastern Standard?

            Lineage is definitely not closing. Word is that Jeremy Sewall has been brought in to revamp the menu, get the staff back on track and bring the food back to par. He is spending a few months working full time in the ES kitchen while is sous chef keeps Lineage on track. Hopefully, it is a good thing. I have had a rough couple of food experiences at ES lately not the least of which were sweetbreads that were still raw in the middle.

              Had dinner there Saturday. Andrew (GM) mentioned Jeremy came on board about a week ago (he was there Sat - was all over the dining room). Didn't sound like a consulting gig, but even if it was I certainly wouldn't expect them to talk about it that way.

              We usually eat at the bar but were in the dining room b/c we were with friends. New pork shank entree - amazingly good. Better than the suckling pork special actually.

              We hadn't been in a few months, so I can't speak to any great flops in the recent past. On this trip food was ok (ceviche - too mild and a little soggy) to fabulous (pork shank and *incredible* butterscotch bread pudding).
