The famous Italian-American chef Mario Batali, one of the best-known in the US, has sold the shares he held in all his restaurants, following the accusations of sexual harassment several women brought against him, during the “Metoo” scandal, the “New York Times” has reported. This is the end of the twenty-year partnership between Batali and the Bastianich family. “Batali will no longer receive benefits from restaurants in any way, form or circumstance”, said Tanya Bastianich, daughter of Lidia Bastianich and sister of Joe Bastianich, with whom she has taken over Batali’s shares. Tanja will be at the helm of a new company that will replace the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group, and will continue to manage the company’s restaurants that are spread across the US, under new management. Batali is also about to leave Eataly, as the company's spokesman, Chris Giglio, told the New York Times, “the process is under way to acquire Mr. Batali's minority stakes in Eataly USA”.
