Named for a small French village near the Italian border, Menton, is the most recent addition to the BL Gruppo Restaurant Group, which already includes No. 9 Park, The Butcher Shop, B&G Oysters, Sportello and Drink. Menton blends French technique and Italian soul on two different menus - a four-course prix-fixe and seven-course chef's tasting, both of which are available nightly.
From its Fort Point perch amid the historic brick buildings and sleek new construction, Menton creates a welcoming, comfortable ambience in which guests can relax and enjoy themselves. With beautifully executed cuisine, an unparalleled wine program, gracious hospitality and a glamorous setting, the restaurant excites, inspires, and transports guests for a memorable evening.

A Massachusetts native, Chef Colin grew up on the North Shore before heading off to Hyde Park New York to attend the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (CIA). It wasn't long however before he was lured back to the Greater Boston area - while still a student, Lynch completed an externship at No.9 Park.
Having gotten his foot in the door, Lynch returned to No.9 Park after graduation and continued to work his way up the line for the next four years before assuming the title of Co-Executive Sous Chef. During his time at the restaurant, No.9 Park garnered many accolades including being named one of the Hottest Restaurants in the World by Food & Wine in 2006 and one of Gourmet's Top 50 Restaurants also in 2006. Boston Magazine awarded No.9 Park Best Restaurant, General Excellence in 2005 and 2006. In 2007, Lynch was singled out by Stuff@Night as a rising culinary talent.
As Co-Executive Sous Chef, Lynch orchestrated many special dinners over the years including an anniversary dinner to benefit the James Beard Foundation. He has also had the honor of cooking for several guest chefs including the legendary Marco Pierre White and Lidia Bastianich.
While working at No.9 Park, Lynch had the opportunity to travel and study abroad. He accompanied Chef Barbara Lynch (no relation) to the Madrid Fusion 2005 conference and has assisted in cooking at several off-site events including The James Beard Awards Gala. In 2007 he 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.
In 2008 Lynch was promoted to the role of Executive Chef for Barbara Lynch Gruppo (BLG). In this position, he works directly with Chef Barbara Lynch, developing menus and overseeing staff training for both existing entities (like The Butcher Shop, B&G Oysters and Sportello) and new concepts, including Menton, which opened in early 2010.
As the Executive Chef of Menton, Lynch assisted in designing the kitchen, creating the menus, and opening the restaurant. He is responsible for the day-to-day culinary operations of Menton while overseeing the kitchens of the other BLG entities.
