Mario Batali booking

Category / genre:

Critically acclaimed chef, restaurateur, award-winning author, and television personality, Mario Batali
is one of the most recognized and respected chefs working in America today. With his business
partner Joe Bastianich, Mario has created a successful restaurant and culinary empire in New York,
Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
Mario and Joe’s flagship is Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca, an award-winning Greenwich Village
restaurant, where Mario has seamlessly combined traditional Italian principles with intelligent culinary
adventure since the restaurant opened in June 1998. A superstar from its inception, Babbo was
honored as “Best New Restaurant of 1998″ by The James Beard Foundation in its inaugural year. Just
weeks later, Ruth Reichl of the New York Times awarded Babbo three stars. In 2004, Frank Bruni rereviewed the restaurant maintaining Babbo’s three-star status and its standing among New York City’s
finest restaurants. Mario is chef/owner of a number of New York City’s other favorite eateries. Lupa
Osteria Romana, a Roman-style trattoria, opened in 1999. A year later, in April 2000, Mario and
chef/partner Dave Pasternack opened Esca, a Southern Italian seafood trattoria in the Theater District.
In January 2003, Mario and Joe opened another downtown outpost – Otto Enoteca Pizzeria , located
around the corner from historic Washington Square Park. In December 2003, Mario and Joe opened
two restaurants adjacent to Gramercy Park: Casa Mono, a Spanish-style taverna, and Bar Jamón, a
bustling tapas bar. In December 2005, Mario, Joe, Lidia Bastianich and Mark Ladner opened Del
Posto. This spacious restaurant in New York City’s meatpacking district features modern Italian
cooking in a luxurious and comfortable setting. In October of 2010, Sam Sifton of the New York Times
awarded Del Posto a four- star review, making it the first Italian restaurant in 36 years to receive this
incredible honor. Mario and Joe’s first west coast ventures, in partnership with Nancy Silverton, are
Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles. Sharing the corner of Highland and Melrose
Avenues, Osteria Mozza features a center island mozzarella bar, where fresh mozzarella is made all
day, every day. Last year, the team in California added a take-out location called Mozza2Go <> as well as Scuola di Pizza, Mozza’s new intimate event and classroom
In 2007, Mario and Joe journeyed to Las Vegas to open B&B Ristorante and Otto Enoteca Pizzeria in
the Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino. A year later, in January 2008, they opened Carnevino Italian
Steakhouse in the Palazzo Hotel, adjacent to the Venetian.
For their first suburban venture, Mario and Joe traveled just outside Manhattan to Westchester
County. The two chose Port Chester, NY as the site of a new authentic trattoria, Tarry Lodge, as well
as Tarry Market and Tarry Wine Merchants. For Mario’s first overseas venture, he opened Osteria
Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza in the Marina Bay Sands Resort Casino in exotic and beautiful Singapore.
Mario and Joe’s latest undertaking is Eataly, a 50,000 square foot Italian marketplace they built with
partners Lidia Bastianich and Oscar Farinetti. Located at 200 Fifth Avenue in New York City, Eataly is
the city’s ultimate destination for food lovers to shop, taste and savor the seasonal and authentic foods
of Italy. In June, Eataly’s much-anticipated Birreria opened to long lines and rave reviews. At this beercentric restaurant on the roof of 200 Fifth Avenue, Eataly partnered with Dogfish Head Brewery’s
founder, Sam Calagione, as well as two Italian brewmasters, Teo Musso of Birra Baladin in Turin and
Leonardo di Vincenzo of Birra del Borgo in Rome. In the summer of 2011, Mario and Joe are opened
two new outposts of their tried and true eateries. In July 2011, Tarry Lodge opened in Westport,
Connecticut, continuing the pair’s suburban conquest. A few months later, they opened Pizzeria
Mozza in Newport Beach, California.
In 2012, Mario and Joe opened Lupa in the heart of Central Hong Kong, serving classic Italian dining
in both a luxurious dining room and an adjacent 2,500 square-foot open terrace. Months later, they
opened Carnevino Steakhouse, also in the LHT Tower. Raised in Seattle, Mario studied the golden
age of Spanish theater at Rutgers University. Soon after graduating, he took his first bite of culinary
training at Le Cordon Bleu in London, but he withdrew almost immediately due to a “lack of interest.”

An apprenticeship with London’s legendary chef Marco Pierre White and three years of intense
culinary training in the Northern Italian village of Borgo Capanne (population 200) gave Mario the
essential skills and knowledge to return to his native U.S., eager to plant his orange-clogged foot firmly
on the behind of the checkered-tablecloth Italian restaurant establishment. Among his many
accolades, Mario was named “Man of the Year” in the chef category by GQ Magazine in 1999. In
2002, he won the James Beard Foundation’s “Best Chef: New York City” award, and in 2005 the
James Beard Foundation awarded Mario the designation of “Outstanding Chef of the Year.” Mario was
also a recipient of the 2001 D’Artagnan Cervena “Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America,” a
prestigious food industry lifetime achievement award.
Mario has authored nine cookbooks to date: Simple Italian Food (Clarkson Potter, 1998); Mario Batali
Holiday Food (Clarkson Potter 2000); The Babbo Cookbook (Clarkson Potter 2002); Molto Italiano:
327 Simple Italian Recipes (ecco, 2005); Mario Tailgates NASCAR Style (The Sporting News 2006);
Mario Batali – Italian Grilling (ecco 2008); and Spain…A Culinary Road Trip (ecco 2008), a companion
cookbook to the PBS prime time series, “Spain…On the Road Again,” that Mario co-authored with
Gwyneth Paltrow. In the spring of 2010, Mario’s eighth cookbook hit the shelves. Molto Gusto (ecco
2010), based on the classic and celebrated dishes of Otto Enoteca Pizzeria, showcases what the
world loves best about Italian food – pizza and pasta! In October 2011, Mario released a collection of
family recipes titled Molto Batali: Simple Family Meals From My Home to Yours (ecco 2011). As of
September 2011, Mario stars in “The Chew,” a daytime talk show on ABC that celebrates and
explores life through food. The Chew airs weekdays at 1PM EST on ABC. Mario has also hosted a
number of television shows for The Food Network including Ciao America, Molto Mario and Iron Chef
America. In the fall of 2008, Mario starred in a PBS series alongside Mark Bittman, Gwyneth Paltrow,
and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols. Spain…On the Road Again followed the foursome’s adventures
as they traveled and ate their way through Spain. Mario is also a frequent guest on The Today Show,
Good Morning America, CBS Early Show, MARTHA and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He recently
appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Charlie Rose.
In 2008, Mario founded the Mario Batali Foundation with the mission of feeding, protecting educating
and empowering children. To learn more about Mario’s mission, visit
