Apparently Olives is actually going to open in January, per Universal Hub, although we’ll believe it when we see it. (In September, English promised a "holiday" reopening; earlier, he’d said Labor Day.) Some people still have faith in the superchef, though: At a Licensing Board meeting this morning, English said that he’s busy hiring staff, and that "upwards of 180 people stopped by to apply for work" yesterday. Or maybe the economy just really is that bad? [UH, Earlier]
