It won’t be Mario Batali’s Babbo Pizzeria and Enoteca, but some restaurant will be opening at 320 Summer St. before too long. That’s the word from the folks at Lincoln Property Co. who manage the South Boston building. Batali “recently terminated [his] lease after failing to obtain a liquor license and other permits required for its operation,” Lincoln’s Jeffrey Moore said in an e-mail Wednesday. “Lincoln had worked diligently with Batali to accommodate all of [his] operational requirements, including the need to vent its wood-burning oven to the roof. The space can meet the needs of any restaurant tenant and is ideally located in the heart of the Fort Point Channel entertainment district.” Batali, the ginger-haired chef whose empire of eateries includes Babbo, Del Posto, Eataly NYC, and OTTO, pulled the plug on the pizzeria a few weeks ago without explanation. He has said he is looking for another location in Boston.
