From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Admirer Luke Mangan admits, "I'm a big fan of anything Mario Batali does"and he's particularly enthralled by Batali's Singapore export. As at the Los Angeles original, the restaurant's star is the central mozzarella bar, which turns out more than 15 varieties of handmade mozzarella, while a soundtrack of U2 thumps in the background. "I love how you can sit at the bar while watching all the fun in the kitchen area," Mangan notes. It doesn't hurt that Osteria Mozza has an impressive 700-bottle wine list (entrées, $25-$43).
Must eat: We love the mozzarella cheese with braised leeks for its simplicity.
