Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich will overhaul the culinary program at the Maritime Hotel.

Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich announced on Monday, August 25 that the restaurateur team would take over the food and beverage program at the Maritime Hotel in Chelsea, New York.

The full project will include La Bottega restaurant within the hotel, the lobby bar, The Cabanas at the Maritime, and the hotel’s room service program.

“The food program will mirror the hotel’s nautical architectural elements, featuring cooking of the Italian coast and islands,” the team announced in a press release. “Dishes of crudo and whole fish will conjure the storied hotels of Capri. Pastel colors and terra-cotta tiles will transport diners to the terraced hillsides of Positano.”

The upcoming project will be the restaurant group’s first standalone New York restaurant in nearly a decade, the most recent of which was Del Posto, which opened in 2006.

“The Maritime has just as much, if not more, outdoor space than any other hotel in Manhattan,” said chef Batali. “It’s the sort of place I like to spend time. We’ll bring our perspective on Italian food and a little old-school New York to this Chelsea landmark.”
