Mr. L. also reports that CAV, the Market Street wine bar whose food has, off and on, been as much a part of its appeal as its bottles, is dropping the idea of serving a full menu, leaving chef John Maher out of a job.

Also: News keeps trickling in about Dennis Leary and his many, many new projects. Look for a précis of all known Leary intel early next week.
