By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine, in partnership with Quintessentially, will host a spectacular evening of outstanding food, inspired cocktails and mesmerizing magic hosted by award winning restaurateur and celebrity chef, Mario Batali at his latest New York restaurant, Del Posto.

Awarded three stars from The New York Times as well as two highly coveted Michelin stars, Del Posto can best be described as an expression of the evolution of cuisines, menus, service and ambiance that have characterized the history of the Italian dining experience.


The exclusive event will feature the cuisine and personal attention of none other than Chef/Owner Mario Batali. Each course will also be expertly paired with wines from LaMozza, Mario’s own vineyard in Tuscany, as well as the highly regarded Friuli Bastianich vineyard.


Entertainer Billy Harris will dazzle guests during cocktail hour with his sleight of hand magic and will close the evening with his world famous stage show featuring a combination of his famed wit, comedy and illusions…leaving guests wanting more!


Acclaimed modern mixologist and Fine Living Network star, Tony Abou-Ganim will design custom cocktails for this special evening. Tony will also be on hand to demonstrate the tricks of the trade and techniques required to recreate his extraordinary drinks at your next cocktail party.
