From the Desk of Ms. Tablehopper

2008_05_batali.jpgBy our estimates, there are roughly 6,700 words in this week's Tablehopper e-column, but none more glorious than the final six: "Mario Batali was in town for his new book, 'Italian Grill,' and after his book signing at Book Passage in Corte Madera, he went by Pizzeria Picco for some pies—he especially loved Bruce Hil's ramp and meatball pizza. He then headed to Coco500 with Bruce Hill, Loretta Keller, and Batali's assistant, Pam Lewy. Hill said in spite of the dual dinner, Batali is looking quite good, and eating a bit less these days."
