The manager listed for the restaurant is Thomas Schlesinger-Guidelli, who is behind Alcove at Lovejoy Wharf; Schlesinger-Guidelli is also the nephew of restaurateur Chris Schlesinger and he has worked at such places as East Coast Grill in Cambridge, Eastern Standard and Island Creek Oyster Bar in Kenmore Square, Craigie on Main in Cambridge, and the Back Eddy in Westport, and he was also a consultant for the opening of Pagu in Cambridge as well.

The address for the proposed Hook + Line is 10 Fan Pier Boulevard, Boston, MA, 02210.
