Mario Batali's PR reps confirm to us that the chef definitely isn't opening Babbo Pizzeria at 320 Summer St. in Fort Point. The statement:
B&B Hospitality Group is saddened to announce that the project called Babbo Pizzeria and Enoteca originally slated for a fourth quarter open date in the exciting Fort Point district in Boston will not come to fruition. We will continue to look for the perfect location to serve the exciting and vibrant Boston community.
On the plus side, former MET chef Todd Winer's pizzeria, Pastoral, is slated to open in October around the corner at 345 Congress St.
