Famed New York chef, Mario Batali, could be eying South Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood for his next culinary destination.
Grub Street Boston, a foodie website, reported that the author and chef sent out a tweet over the weekend replying to an interested Bostonian, declaring his excitement for a new mystery Boston-based pizzeria.
"Very soon!! Babbopizzeria! Wheeeeeeeeee!” the tweet said.
Eater Boston, another Boston based culinary blog, reported that one of its sources said the location could be in the Fort Point or the Seaport area.
Batali is known for his Italian cuisine and his culinary experience in New York City, where he has nine restaurants ranging from a tapas bar to traditional Italian fine dining, according to his website.
Representatives for Batali did not immediately return requests for a comment, but this would be the chef's first Boston location.
