Recently I went to dinner in two Batali/Bastianich restaurants in NY, Esca(fish of the day) and Casa Mono(spanish restaurant).
The food was excellent, good presentation and good taste without too many flavors and ingredients.

But… also these restaurants have to learn a lot about service (American service without passion and “savoir faire”).                                                                      
Asking for the wine before order food isn’t the right welcome to the clients and asking theme to go away to free a table is worse.  
Batali, Bastianich “come on” you have travelled a lot and you’re teaching every days how to eat and live better, you can not make these mistakes.

Last suggestion: if you want to cook a really Italian risotto, you have to use carnaroli rice and not arborio like you could read in some books.
