It is official. East Coast Grill owner Chris Schlesinger is selling the restaurant, as has been rumored for some time. The buyers will continue to operate East Coast Grill. They know what they're doing. They are executive chef Jason Herd, general manager Robin Greenspan, and James Lozano. The transfer will be finalized this spring.

Schlesinger will take some time to travel, continuing to learn about food from around the world. The new team will keep on grilling, barbecuing, shucking, and setting people's faces on fire at Hell Night events.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
