Mario Batali Once Again Plans Babbo Pizzeria in Boston

Mario Batali by Krieger

Mario Batali plans to open his first Boston restaurant, Babbo Pizzeria, by the end of this year. The chef had originally hoped to make this addition to his empire over a year ago, but those plans for a restaurant in the Fort Point district fell through last summer. Now, however, Batali has signed on to a massive space at a new waterfront development at Fan Pier. The plan for the restaurant hasn't changed since that first attempt, and the result will be something closer to Otto than the more upscale Babbo here in NYC (there's already a restaurant called Otto in Boston, which may be the reason for the switch). It will serve wood-fired pizzas and pasta, and include three separate bars—one for cocktails, one for pizza, and one for antipasto. Construction should start in a few weeks, and the restaurant is slated to open by the end of 2014.
