Todd English restaurants

Only in town for a few nights, but are any of Todd's restaurants chow worthy?

      1. I've always enjoyed Olives in Charletown, it can be a bit noisy with the open kitchen concept but I really really love his tuna tartare app. I haven't been in prob a year or so but I've always enjoyed dining here.

        1. I still like the Figs on Beacon Hill (gourmet pizza, salads, sandwiches), but Olives in Charlestown is a disappointment to most visitors who insist I bring them there. It's a pale shadow of its former glory (years ago, it was my favorite upscale restaurant in Boston), and The Todd rarely if ever darkens its doorstep. There are about a hundred fine-dining venues in Boston that outperform it.

            I do like that fig and proscuitto pizza, and while it usually isn't my first choice, Kingfish Hall is actually quite good for certain things. Their chowders are very good, and I like their lobster roll. I had a ceviche once with pickled onions that was excellent. Haven't been to olives in many years, mostly based on similar tales of faded glory.
