This week we've heard yet again about a change in dates for the "imminent" opening of the Batali/Silverton venture Mozza Bar. We will let you decide who to believe: the journalists over at Zagat, who say the restaurant is aiming for an early 2007 opening, or the chowhounders who claim October 16th is the due date. Chowhound, we want to believe, we truly do. But Mozza has cockteased us before. At this rate, even Tom Colicchio will have his restaurant open in LA before Batali.
Incidentially, the zagat link provides an excellent roundup of restaurant news for the LA area this fall.
