Beginning with almost Dickensian roots, working in his parents Felice and Lidia’s Italian restaurant in Queens, washing dishes, cleaning the sidewalk, and touring the jungle-like meat markets of the Bronx, Joe Bastianich’s life charts a culinary adventure that ends with this nice Italian boy becoming one of America’s premier restaurateurs — as well as a noted winemaker, bon vivant, street-level philosopher, and eventually, a marathon runner.

Joe’s story begins with him learning the ropes of the restaurant racket at the feet of his father, an ultra-pragmatic “restaurant man” who saw no glamour in his business. After college (and some time following the Grateful Dead, and — God forbid — drinking beer!) Joe found himself working on Wall Street, where he used his knowledge of wine to level the playing field with the so-called “masters of the universe.” After just a year working in finance, Joe ditched his suit and tie and went head first into a life of food and wine, buying himself a one-way ticket to Italy, where he spent the next year traveling the country in a beat-up Volkswagen, working in restaurants and on vineyards, digging himself deeper into his rich heritage.

Upon returning to New York, he partnered with his mother, Chef Lidia Bastianich, to open Becco, which quickly became a New York City favorite for its home-style pasta and eye- opening fixed-price wine list.

Soon after Joe became partners with the irrepressible Mario Batali, and is now the less- publicly-vociferous but equally important power behind some of New York’s bestrestaurants, including the legendary Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca, Lupa Osteria Romana, Esca, Casa Mono, Bar Jamόn, Otto Enoteca Pizzeria and the much storied Del Posto.
