We are thrilled to announce that New York Magazine has chosen Del Posto as one of their Absolute Best Italian Restaurants in New York City. It’s always a pleasure to appear on lists like this one, and affirm that our hard work and dedication to exceptional Italian food and hospitality is appreciated. We are also in outstanding company on this list, with restaurants like Chef Rita Sodi’s I Sodi, Chef Michael White’s Marea, Chef Missy Robbins’ Lilia, and of course, our sister restaurant Babbo.
Robin Raisfeld and Rob Patronite write of Del Posto:
It’s impossible to draw up an Absolute Best Italian Restaurants in New York list without Mario Batali establishments popping up everywhere like daffodils in springtime. And though Babbo is a sentimental favorite for many (and probably for Batali himself), the more meticulous and luxurious Del Posto best demonstrates what Italian fine dining can and should be: stylish and sophisticated, elegant but unstodgy, devoted to updating and refining traditional flavors and recipes for modern palates. Culinarily, it’s the house that Mark Ladner built, and even though he’s left the kitchen, his trademark combination of scholarship and comfort remains in good hands with longtime deputy and successor, Melissa Rodriguez. Though we do miss that 100-layer lasagna.
