Get ready for a new Mario Batali restaurant.The menu for Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich’s upcoming mega 474-seat restaurant inside (and outside) the Maritime Hotel in New York has finally been revealed.
The proposed menu was unveiled at a community board meeting. It will include separate breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner menus stuffed with new twists on Italian favorites like Amaretto mascarpone pancakes and eggs in purgatory for breakfast; ravioli al uovo with bottarga (eggs and fish roe ravioli) for brunch; and sea scallops tartare with green tomato marmalade and scottaditta with panelle (lamb chops with fried Sicilian fritters) for lunch and dinner.
The proposed restaurant will have 88 indoor tables, 72 outdoor tables, and a bar, according to the business permit application, and will be located on 9th avenue between 16th and 17th streets. Other menu highlights include Nonna’s fried egg with ricotta on the breakfast menu; rigatoni with Sunday gravy on the brunch menu (because it’s never too early for a proper Italian Sunday dinner); and orecchiette with tripe, and pesto and potato lasagna on the dinner menu.
The Daily Meal has reached out to the Batali and Bastianich team for more information.
