For the first time in its 14 year history, Mario Batali's crown jewel restaurant, the three-starred Babbo in Greenwich Village will open to the public for lunch today at 11:30 AM. Repeat: Babbo, Batali, Lunch Today. Word on the street is Molto Mario wrote the entire menu himself and getting this off the ground is a major priority at Batali HQ. Reservations will eventually be taken, but it will be walk-in only today. So hurry up and clear that lunch hour.
