Share Article

For years a favorite destination among locals and visitors alike, the beloved restaurant will be relocating to the Greater Boston area as it also looks forward to its evolution and reinvention.

I am very excited about this rebirth of Olives...we have been working for some time on the reinvention of our signature restaurant.

Todd English announced today the relocation of his signature Charlestown restaurant, Olives. The landmark establishment that opened it doors in 1989 on Main Street, and moved to City Square three years later is once again moving to a new location in the greater Boston area.

“Charlestown is and will always have a special place in my heart. It is with sadness that I will be leaving this neighborhood. We have been here since 1989 and so many wonderful memories are tied to this place,” says Todd English. “But with the incredible way America’s culinary landscape has been evolving, I have decided that Olives - my first and signature restaurant - must also evolve.”

Olives will reopen at a new and shiny location. “I am very excited about this rebirth of Olives. Together with my eldest son, Oliver who I am proud to say has just come onboard, and the whole English culinary family, we have been working for some time on the reinvention of our signature restaurant,” explains English. “What will Olives version 3.0 look like? Well, lets just say it will be a surprise. It will be a true representation of the evolution of America’s hunger for freshness and diversity, but also stay true to Olives Mediterranean roots. Stay tuned!”

The relocation of Olives is also part of a larger project to open additional restaurants in the Boston area. Plans are already underway to open a TE Food Hall and TE P.U.B., two of English’s most successful recent ventures, in New York, Las Vegas and Birmingham.

During the relocation, guests in Boston can still enjoy Todd English’s two Figs locations as well as Isabelle’s CurlyCakes for their cupcake fix. For Olives fans who cannot wait, the New York, Las Vegas and newly opened Mexico City location are just a short train or airplane ride away. In addition, Olives Paradise Island is slated to open this summer in the Bahamas and Olives Abu Dhabi in 2014.
