Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Looks like chef Mario Batali is continuing the Connecticut expansion push of his Tarry Lodge Enoteca and Pizzeria, this time in New Haven, CT. The New Haven Independent reports that the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group has a proposal currently under review by the City Plan Commission for a restaurant in a building in which Yale has a "long-term lease." According to the New Haven Register, the space was approved to be a restaurant back in 2005, but has never been occupied.

The New Haven location would be Batali's third Tarry Lodge, which has locations in Port Chester, NY (opened 2008) and Westport, CT (opened 2011). The management team includes Joe Bastianich, chef Andy Nusser, and general manager Nancy Selzer. The Commission will reportedly vote on the proposal next month, and Batali's team wants to open "as quickly as possible once it's approved." Eater has reached out for more details, and has not heard back yet, so stay tuned.
