This weekend, Mario Batali announced via Twitter that plans for a Boston restaurant are in the works: "Very soon !! Babbopizzeria! Wheeeeeeeeee." Wheeeeeeeeee, indeed. This would be the first Babbo Pizzeria; Batali's restaurant empire already includes a Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca in New York, as well as a handful of pizzerias under both the OTTO and Mozza brands. It would also be the first Batali restaurant in Boston. Eater Boston has all kinds of intel on the new restaurant, including the location (the Fort Point and Seaport District area, most likely) and the fact that it might actually be an OTTO pizzeria after all.
