Celebrity chef Todd English seems to have set his sights on South Florida, opening four restaurants here in the span of a year with no signs of stopping. His Wild Olives is a take on his premier Boston restaurant, Olives, where English earned his fame. It features rustic Mediterranean dishes, seafood, flatbread pizzas, and pasta. Much of it is overembellished and features either too little flavor (Boston Bibb salad) or too much (flatbread with fig, prosciutto, rosemary, and blue cheese). But some dishes, like asparagus frittes and oddly shaped cavatelli pasta, are rustic and tasty. The space is well-designed, with a tall back-lit bar and beige tones interrupted by stark white columns. The service is spotty and stuffy. Reservations are highly recommended.
