In April, I reported on a rumor that Todd English's Olives would make way for a Legal Test Kitchen. Now, according to a City of Boston licensing document, Olives has petitioned the Licensing Board to transfer their alcohol license to Legal C Bar. So, it seems Olives will indeed become Legal. (Ironically, Todd English owns an oyster farm.) English has said that he'll reopen Olives elsewhere with his son Oliver, in a "new and shiny" location. The Charlestown restaurant closed in June 2013, having reopened in May 2012 after a fire.
