Mario Batali hits the town

The chef had Italian food on the brain, naturally.

Mario Batali hits the town


Mario Batali was in town with his wife and kids over the weekend, as my tipsters have been Babbo-ling.

Not surprisingly, his restaurant destinations fit squarely into his business model.

Saturday, the chef/restaurateur/media personality visited Amìs, Marc Vetri's Roman trattoria. Sunday, he joined a large party over pies and apps at Stephen Starr's Pizzeria Stella.

His rep says he was in town visiting relatives, not location-scouting.
