Despite Bankers’ Batali Boycott, Only Esca Has a Table Available; His Other Restaurants Mostly Booked

Earlier today, financial workers around the city swore off Mario Batali's restaurants after Forbes quoted him comparing bankers to Stalin and Hitler. Now that the suits won't be snapping up Mario's tables, we just called all of his spots in the city (and beyond) to see if they can squeeze a couple in for dinner tonight at 8 p.m.
