Celebrity chef Mario Batali to open a steakhouse here


American-Italian celebrity chef Mario Batali is planning a third restaurant in Singapore, 21 months after opening Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza at Marina Bay Sands.

He will be bringing his Italian steakhouse concept, Carnevino, to Singapore's central business district. A location has not been finalised yet, but if all goes well, the restaurant may likely open in the next six months to a year.

He adds that most cultures will want to "eat a little beef now and then", and is certain that the market here will "love it".

Batali was in town over the weekend to check on his current restaurants and visit the potential location for his new restaurant.
