Whenever you visit the lucky cities that have any of Mario’s restaurants, stop in and mow down the best of the best! Hers a link to his web site that shows what is where! (“Babbo” in NYC takes reservations only 30 days ahead of time, and my wife and I have NEVER been lucky enough to secure one! Calling on the first of the 30 day time frame, every seat reserves out for the weeks we visit in the first couple hours, and that’s NON-STOP calling!) Keep trying, I know I will…
AND, our favorite authentic Italian cured meats, served in the best restaurants in Seattle, are made by Mr. Batali’s father here in Seattle. We’re talking the REAL DEAL, what others only dream of, these are authentic and time cured to perfection.
Stop by his little hideaway sandwich shop in Pioneer Square, “Salumni”, to enjoy the best sandwich you’ll ever taste. Get there before 11:00AM, before he opens, and be at the head of the line that will build longer as lunch time progresses, then relish Mr. Batali’s seriously incredible sandwiches (and take home enough to platter up for friends and family for your party of life!) He sells out between 3 and 4, and then the doors close. It appears the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, the father & the son, quality all the way!
