Todd English is back with a lighter, brighter, more “futuristic” Olives, and last night he held a swanky soiree to celebrate his flagship’s re-emergence onto the dining scene. As seen here, he was hard at work plating, and his toils paid off. According to our spy, there was “scrumptious” beet ravioli on spoons, “luscious” pizzettes, and plenty of free-flowing rose. The new dining room does indeed appear lighter and brighter, the open kitchen looked good, and there’s a big ol’ bar. The beginning of a new era for English? Time will tell. [Earlier]
