Mario Batali's Babbo any good?

  • 6

Has anyone been? Will be taking my parents to a show in February, looking for a great restaurant to take my somewhat particular mother...

    1. The important thing, since you say your mom is particular in her food tastes, is what you mean by that. Babbo is a great, famous restaurant and if she likes that, it is a good choice. But it is also known for daring food and that is not necessarily for everyone (for the record, I think Babbo is great but I do love stuff like tongue and sweetbreads which I think is some of the point of going to Babbo). There are many items for the non-adventurous there but, to my mind, the real reason to go there is to be challenged to new tastes and new directions. If she is conservative in her food choices, this might not be the best for her.
