An Italian emporium that is on the verge of opening in Boston's Back Bay is teaming up with an award-winning local chef who will be involved with one of its restaurants.
According to a press release, Eataly Boston has announced that Barbara Lynch will be collaborating with them on Il Pesce, an elegant but casual seafood spot that will be located within Eataly, a huge marketplace that is slated to open at the Prudential Center on November 29. The release says that the restaurant will include a 64-seat dining room, a 12-seat bar, and 10 additional seats that face Il Crudo, a raw bar connected to the dining spot. In addition to being involved with Il Pesce, Lynch will also be teaching classes at La Scuola di Eataly by Valcucine, which will be a cooking school within the space.
One of the people involved with Eataly Boston is celebrity chef and restaurateur Mario Batali.
Barbara Lynch's restaurant group--Barbara Lynch Gruppo--includes such places as Menton, Drink, Sportello, The Butcher Shop, B&G Oysters, and No. 9 Park, all of which are located in Boston.
