Since Mario Batali has become increasingly sympathetic to the vegetarian camp, I'm looking for an update on Babbo's vegetarian policy. I had one of the best meals of my life there, eating everything from lamb's tongue to sweetbreads and tripe but I hope to take my boyfriend there and he only eats kosher meat so is effectively vegetarian, as far as Babbo is concerned. He really wants to experience their pasta after hearing me rave. I found an old post about a vegetarian pasta tasting menu that they are willing to do if given advanced notice. Does anyone have any information on this and how to request it?
If that does not exist is there a place where I could find more information on the seemingly vegetarian pasta dishes they currently offer? I don't see recipes for them posted on the site. I'm specifically thinking of the goat cheese tortelloni with fennel pollen, the maccheroni alla chitarra (the mullet roe is not a problem), the garganelli with funghi or the sweet potato lune.
Any help is much appreciated!
