Celebrated chef Mario Batali was in Boston Friday whipping up a dinner with his friend Radius chef/owner Michael Schlow. The party served two purposes: It welcomed the famed New York foodie to Boston — Batali’s about to open an Italian restaurant in South Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood — and it marked the closing of Radius, a Financial District mainstay for 15 years that will reopen elsewhere with a new name. (Schlow has said he would not close the restaurant but the lease is up.) Batali’s new place, Babbo Pizzeria e Enoteca, will be located on Summer Street and be focused on wood-burning brick oven Italian-style pizza and a variety of pastas, antipasti, and gelati.
