Mark Ladner May Be Kickstarting a Gluten-Free Pasta Spot

Mark Ladner by Krieger

Rumor has it that Del Posto chef Mark Ladner will launch a Kickstarter later this month for a new quick-service gluten-free pasta restaurant called Pasta Flyer. There aren't many details ahead of the crowdfunding campaign, which will launch after Memorial Day, but Ladner has put a lot of time into developing a gluten-free replica of everything on Del Posto's menu, and has done so with much success, so expect this to be better than your average gluten-free pasta joint.

Ladner himself has not made any announcements about the project, but he did retweet the news. If the chef is funding it with a Kickstarter campaign, it's likely that this is not a collaboration with Del Posto owners Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, but there's no word yet on whether Ladner will leave his position at Del Posto or if this just is a side project. It is worth noting, however, that Dave Pasternack recently opened Barchetta independently of Batali and Bastianich, but still remains very much at the helm of Esca. Eater has reached out to Ladner for details, more information as it becomes available.
