Watch Mario Batali and Christine Quinn’s Meet-up on The High Road


Last time out, The High Road With Mario Batali pitted the chef against Mike Myers in a friendly (and bizarro) game of beer pong in Washington Square Park. Here, we have a more contemplative episode with Batali and former mayoral candidate (and City Council Speaker) Christine Quinn. The two talk about women politicians, the city's hunger issue, and La Marqueta — the former public market in East Harlem that's now home to the exceptional Hot Bread Kitchen, which will no doubt launch "the next Mario Batali," as Quinn says.
