He is also a philanthropist, giving back to the community through his work for Kids for Kids, the Food Bank for New York City, and the Mario Batali Foundation.
Mario and his business partner Joe Bastianich’s first restaurant was Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Launched in 1998, Babbo features excellent Italian food and praises the Italian lifestyle. The menu changes from night to night and the variety of dishes to choose from is unmatched.
Diners can choose to sit in the quiet split-level dining room which seats up to 90 people, or they can join the other patrons at the bar to share a bottle of wine or enjoy their dinner in a more lively atmosphere.
A pasta tasting menu gives diners a chance to experience everything from Black Tagliatelle with Peas and Castelmagno to a dessert of Olive Oil Rosemary Cake with Olive Oil Gelato. The traditional tasting menu features unique dishes like Grilled Guinea Hen and Duck Tortelli.
Diners at Babbo are sure to find eclectic dishes they love and tastes they have never experienced before.
