The multi-floor, multi-restaurant culinary behemoth will include separate mini-restaurants devoted to meat, fish, vegetables, pasta and pizza, panini, espresso, gelato, salumi, cheeses plus a rooftop brewpub. Batali will design the menus for each sub-venue, his first foray into menu design since Otto.
