From L'Espalier to The Urban Grape; Power Lunch

BACK BAY/CHESTNUT HILL - L'Espalier beverage director Erich Schliebe is now at the Urban Grape wine shop in Chestnut Hill. He left the Boylston Street restaurant after nine years, and a representative for the store says that he'll only be at the Chestnut Hill location (there's also one in the South End) but will be "lending his expertise to the whole company." [Official Site]

NORTH END - Ducali Pizzeria owner Philip Frattaroli is "seriously considering a run for Boston City Councilor At-Large" says Though he's more than just a restaurateur: Frattaroli has also served as an aid to a former New York governor and has a JD from Suffolk University Law School. So how might having a restaurant owner in local politics affect the industry? []

WATERFRONT - City Landing is one of the best places in the country for a power lunch, says It's listed as one of "The Top 10 Power Lunch Restaurants" and serves "a staple of New England classics... But the bankers, real estate execs and lawyers who come for lunch can also choose a mushroom risotto, duck pizzetta or paprika braised lamb." Good for them. [Worth via EN]
