This sure looks like a restaurant about to re-open

Inside the new Olives.

Tlecam peeked inside the rebuilt Olives in City Square the other day.

Owner Todd English has been making quarterly visits to the Boston Licensing Board - which oversees liquor and food licenses - to plead for more time to rebuild after a 2010 fire. In his most recent chat with the board, last month, English said all that was left was to get a couple of permits from ISD and that, this time, he really hoped to be re-opening Olives soon.

While Todd English pleads for more time to reopen Olives, Krista Kranyak, owner of Ten Tables, is pleading for ISD to let her open Grass Fed Burgers in the old Bon Savor space on Centre Street.

Is there no justice?!?

What are you saying? That ISD is playing favorites?

if ISD plays favorites. All I was saying was what I said. I was just struck this morning that we have a restaurant in JP that desperately wants to open and can't, while one in Charlestown that doesn't want to open is being forced to. We'd like some of that energy over here getting Grass Fed Burgers open, that's all!

Olive's in Charlestown wants to open very badly, is my understanding. They aren't asking for more time. The building they are located in need to fix a few things for fire standards. No one is forcing Olive's to open.

Olive's is listed as a participant in Restaurant Week which is around the end/mid of this month.
