Nice write-up, Brad. I didn't know you posted over here (vs. eBob) at all! Nice to see your comments. I've always wanted to try Babbo and, after reading this, I've got even more reasons. I just need to get over there at some point. How are their wine prices? How's the list? Do they allow BYO?
How's the list? Awesome. And their prices are not that unreasonable for a restaurant of it's caliber in NYC. I personally could see no reason to BYO at Babbo.
BRR-
Agreed ten fold w/ VT2IT on the wine list...would only contemplate bringing your own if you loathe Italian wine! Wine list has great depth & breadth of some Italian gems (even a few vintages of Valentini's Trebbianos & Pieropan's La Rocca...a personal favorite Soave of mine). Some late '90s Giacosa can be had for under retail as well...

Food is splendid and so many of the wines work beautifully w/ the cuisine that the pairing options are essentially infinite. Try walking in on a Monday like I did...DON'T CALL! They never answer the phone!
