By Patrick

Here is an article I wrote for corkd.com about a recent visit to Mario & Lidia’s upscale new age Italian eatery Del Posto.

Del Posto: Mario Batali & Lidia Bastianich Pair New-Age Italian Cuisine with Classic Wines in NYC

Mario Batali and Lidia Bastianich are 2 heavyweights of Italian cuisine in New York City, both known throughout the U.S. for their Food Network and PBS cooking shows. When these 2 decided to get together, opening a multi-million dollar restaurant to garnish Michelin stars and award worthy wine lists, needless to say there was a huge anticipation.

For various reasons, including the mixed press from critics, it has taken me awhile to get there. Yup, I was getting my crocs and shorts out and going Mario style!

    Nice job…with a little practice, you could be a decent restaurant critic! I enjoyed the review, even though I will never get to Del Posto.

    Thanks Michelle – the original article I wrote was even longer if you could believe that- Had a great time but I really do see why some people could go there and leave disappointed- I enjoyed it for sure if money was no object I am sure I would eat there every few months- but still I love Babo and Felidia and would go there weekly if I could
