Dad wants to take myself and my fiance out to dinner at one of Batali's restaurants later on this month. Can't decide whether to pick Del Posto or Babbo. Have obviously heard many good and a few bad things about both. Fiance and Dad have more adventurous palates than I do. I venture beyond lasagna, but don't care for sweetbreads or wild game.
Price is no object, would prefer a slightly more casual atmosphere vs. super stuffy white glove service. A great wine list is a plus, as is excellent service.
Thanks so much in advance for your guidance!
