Del Posto; Neo-Soul
Mark and Francis share some impressions of their visit to Mario Batali's new restaurant, Del Posto. Granted, parties larger than 4 have to jump through hoops to get a reservation, leave a deposit (first born?) and preselect from a limited menu. Still The Guys felt the space was spectacular and the service amongst the best they've experienced in New York City. Del Posto: 85 Tenth Ave. (between 15th and 16th Sts.), New York, NY 10011; 212-497-8090
They guys are joined by Lindsey Williams, grandson of soul food royalty. His grandmother was Sylvia Woods founded Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem in 1962. It is the epicenter of the soul food world in New York City. His book chronicles his childhood raised into the restaurant, the famous people he knew and knows, how he parlayed that into a successful music career and traded that all for his own catering business and his excellent new book: Neo Soul, detailing his healthful take on soul food.
