A rather vague teaser for a story in the Monday edition of Crain’s indicates that Mario Batali has gotten on the bad side of the Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York, which has brought lawsuits against Daniel Boulud and others: “Mr. Batali and the workers group have been negotiating quietly, said Fekkak Mamdouh, co-founder of ROC NY. The group declined to give further details of about the labor action.” Silly workers — don’t they know the more entertaining way to air their complaints against Batali is in book form?
