2008_09_batali.jpgNothing to spice up your weekday night like getting picked up by a boisterous Mario Batali at a table at Casa Mono. The rotund Croc-wearing chef spots a lovely specimen (and former model) on the corner, offers her some wine and cheese, introduces her to cohort Tom Colicchio and four other chefs, and shows her pictures of his son on his iPhone: "Clearly, this was just a guy who loved food. A very drunk guy who loved food. I felt like I’d fell into the warm custody of culinary Santa Clause." [Miss Model Behavior]
