This is probably Mario Batali’s best restaurant, serving up his perfectly executed, regional Italian dishes in a dressed-up, white tableclothed setting.¬†Unlike many other upscale NYC restaurants, Babbo has a fun (and never stuffy) vibe. It’s hard to get a table but we like to go to the bar for an incredible plate of pasta and a glass of wine. The private room is a great place to host a fancy lunch.
