Suddenly easier to get a reservation at Batali restaurants?

Just curious if so. Time to occupy Batali?

  1. Good for Mario. I have a lot of respect for rich folks like him and Warren Buffet who are willing to call the American oligarchs out. It shows that the problems in our financial system can be seen by both the haves and the have-nots, and that there is more to the OWS folk than a bunch of whining about not being able to get a job.

    I'd happily support one of Batali's restaurants if I lived anywhere near one, and I have a feeling any lost business from bankers will be more than made up by those who agree with his statements.

      1. Folks, we know this is sort of an inherently political topic, but we'd ask that people try to keep away from political arguments here -- politics are really off-topic for Chowhound. Thanks.

        1. I'm sure that Mario is happy about the publicity. The effect on his bookings will be negligible.
