A family friend let me know Mario Batali was in Half Moon Bay over the weekend for his son Benno’s 21st birthday, (visiting BARBARA’S FISH TRAP!) and it looks like they also came into SF to dine at BENU. Lucky Benno!

A reader writes in that Mario Batali and about five friends came in for lunch at Mateo’s Cocina Latina in Healdsburg on Saturday afternoon. Chef Mateo Granados came out and thanked them for coming in and talked to them for a while. Batali was in town for the annual Heirloom Tomato Festival at Kendall-Jackson in Santa Rosa.
