Mario Batali believes that olive oil is as precious as gold, shorts are acceptable attire for every season and food, like most things, is best when left to its own simple beauty. To that end, Mario creates magic night after night in his many New York City Italian hot spots, the flagship of which is Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca, an award-winning Greenwich Village restaurant where Mario has seamlessly combined traditional Italian principles with intelligent culinary adventure since June 1998.

I'm so lucky to live on the east coast. We have some of the world's best cooks!! I had the pleasure of eating at Babbo Ristorante and actually at Casa Mono for a couple of weeks. The food at Bobbo was so tasty!!
