Cititour Review:

Del Posto is perhaps best described as the restaurant equivalent of King Kong. Occupying a mammoth 24,000 square feet, and pulling in wildly popular advance reviews, it is the long awaited (and much hyped) project of Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich (with whom he owns Babbo, Lupa, Casa Mono, Otto, and Bar Jamon), and Lidia Bastianich, the matriarch of the Bastianich clan and the woman behind Felidia.

Modeled after a grand European hotel by architect/designer Glen Coben, Del Posto is cloaked in waves of marble and filled with plush banquettes covered in warm autumnal tones. But the space pales in comparison to the food, under the expert care of chef Marc Ladner, the longtime executive chef of Lupa. He offers a slew of old-world tableside preparations like a $240 rack of veal with chestnuts, shiitakes and truffles, and a $220 salt-baked arctic char with cauliflower ragu. Monetary mortals can stick gentler priced pastas like ricotta and chard nudi with pumpkin seeds ($21), spaghetti with crab and jalapeño ($27), and entrees like squab with wild arugula ($30), and orata with puntarelle and sweet potatoes ($27).
