One of the greatest pleasure about being a chef is getting the chance to spend time with your peers, colleagues and friends. Unfortunately, when you live on an Island 30 miles out to sea, where everyone works intense hours in season those moments may not come as often as we wish. The winter is a different story. We traveled up to Lineage in Boston to celebrate help their anniversary with 10 lbs of fresh out of the harbor Nantucket bay scallops.
Jeremy and Lisa Sewall created Lineage Restaurant’s concept. They are a married couple with extensive culinary experience and deep New England roots. Located in the heart of Brookline’s Coolidge Corner, the restaurant takes its name from Jeremy’s own “Lineage.”
In 1705, when this muddy river hamlet of Boston became incorporated, Samuel Sewall (son of Judge Sewall of Salem Witch Trials fame) not only lent the community his services as the first Town Clerk, but also provided the use of his family’s “Brooklin” lands.
Fishing has also been a livelihood of the Sewall family throughout the generations. Cousin Mark Sewall continues the tradition aboard his boat Kelpa, sailing out of York Harbor daily to help supply Jeremy with some of the tastiest lobster in town.
Joining in the anniversary celebration were- Island Creek Oysters Team, Chef’s Jody Adams, Michael Schlow, William Kovel, Seth & Angela Raynor & friends. Chef-de-cuisine, Richard Morin and team were amazing hosts. Follow-up about the after party at Eastern Standard Kitchen to follow.
