Great news! I have eaten at three of his restaurants including Daniel in NYC. I really hope he maintains the high level of service and food as at his other restaurants and finds a great executive chef and front of house manager.
Glad to know I'm not the only Babbo fan around here. But when it comes to bang for the buck, I think Lupa is amazing and I don't think we have anything that compares to it in town in terms of looks, atmosphere and food. I'd love to stand corrected though.
