The Quotable Mario Batali

New, 4 comments

Mario Batali on why he and Joe Bastianich started expanding their restaurant group: "It wasn't ever our manifest destiny to create 20 restaurants; it was more that after two years at Babbo, one of the great chefs, who was a sous chef at that time, Mark Ladner, needed somewhere to go, and if we didn't do something with him, he would go work with Danny Meyer, which is not a bad place to go, but why take all of that talent and just let it slip away? So we opened Lupa." [Fast Company]
