Italian restaurant giants Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich are reportedly heading over to Boston, Grub Street reports.
Word is that Batali will be opening a Babbo Pizzeria e Enoteca in Fort Point, with B&B Hospitality Group signing a lease on a space at 320 Summer Street, with an entrance on A Street.
Unlike the New York flagship, however, Boston's Babbo will forgo the focus on beef cheek ravioli and instead serve up brick-oven pizza, as well as pasta, antipasto, and gelato, Grub Street reports.
In the meantime, Chicago is still breathlessly waiting for its own Eataly, while Vegas is wondering what else Batali will do in their hood. Babbo Pizzeria e Enoteca will be B&B Hospitality's first Boston restaurant, although it won't technically be Batali and Bastianich's first in New England (Westport, Connecticut's Tarry Lodge gets that distinction).
Batali and Bastianich already have 11 restaurants in New York, as well as holdings in California, Connecticut, Las Vegas, and Asia.
