Around Town: Babbo, New York City

Mario Batali can do no wrong. After loving Pizzeria Mozza and Eataly, I wanted to try out Batali’s New York City restaurant, Babbo Ristorante, to see what all the amazing reviews were about. Babbo is on a side street in the West Village,  and it could not be more charming. With a dim and intimate downstairs and an airy and spacious upstairs, Babbo offers a comfortable and private space to dine with friends and family. The food is made from local and fresh ingredients, and the flavors in each dish are incredibly rich. The Mozzarella di Bufala appetizer had the freshest mozzarella I have ever tasted. You definitely will not be disappointed here.
