You are looking for a nano behind the restaurant at which Colin Lynch is Executive Chef.

Colin Lynch

Colin Lynch grew up on the North Shore and attended the prestigious Culinary Institute of America. While a student at the CIA, Colin completed an externship at No. 9 Park. After finishing school, Colin returned to No. 9 Park and continued to work his way up the line for the next four years before assuming the title of co-executive sous chef. In 2007, Colin spent the summer in Paris working in several Michelin-starred kitchens including Taillevent and L’Arpege to hone his culinary techniques and study the mechanics of fine dining.

RetiredGuy and Colin Lynch

In 2008 Colin was promoted to the role of executive chef for Barbara Lynch Gruppo (BLG). In this position, Colin works directly with Chef Barbara Lynch (no relation), developing menus and overseeing staff training for both existing entities and new concepts, including Menton. As the executive chef of Menton, Colin assisted Chef Barbara in designing the kitchen, creating the menus, and opening the restaurant. Under his direction, Menton has received several accolades, including being named one of Bon Appetit and Esquire magazines best new restaurants in 2010 and a 4 star review from The Boston Globe. Colin is responsible for the day-to-day culinary operations of Menton while overseeing the kitchens of the other BLG entities.

Captain Oliver Queenan (Martin Sheen)

Boston trivia: In the 2006 Martin Scorsese film, The Departed, Captain Oliver Queenan (Martin Sheen) is thrown to his death off of a building labeled "344 Wash". Queenan's body landed very close to where the cache is now hidden.
