For the first time in its 14 years of existence, Mario Batali’s Babbo opened for lunch today. Dinnertime reservations are notoriously hard to secure at the New York restaurant, which, according the menu obtained by Eater, served Turkey Porchetta and Orecchiette with Stinging Nettles and Salami this afternoon, along with a $49 four-course prix fixe —$20 less than the cheapest tasting served in the evenings. While the new daytime hours will make it easier and more affordable to try Babbo, this recipe for crispy Chicken Thighs with Garlicky Crumbs and Snap Peas is the fastest and cheapest way to taste Batali's food. Anchovy fillets mixed into the bread crumbs adds a salty, complex flavor to the quick-cooking dish.
