“Del Posto is the ultimate expression :: of what an Italian restaurant should be.” That’s verbatim from the website. As it’s a Mario Batali experience, you should expect the best. I’m not sure I would call it “the expression of an Italian restaurant” but it’s unbelievably delicious.
Tonight we dined on risotto with crab and jalepeno (primi for 2) that takes 35 minutes to cook, and halibut that was lighter than a baby’s bottom. Both were melt in your mouth amazing.
Babbo and Il Mulino still steal my heart for the ultimate Italian experience in NYC, but Del Posto is nothing to sneeze at. If you’ve got the cash, spend it here and enjoy the experience.
