To say that things aren't going well for chef Mario Batali's career would be an understatement. "Abysmal" is a better description, and things just keep getting worse. These are the real reasons Batali is giving up all his restaurants.

In December 2017, allegations of Batali's misconduct against his staff surfaced. The damaging report came courtesy of the New York food website Eater, as four women claimed that over the course of two decades, Batali made unwanted comments and engaged in inappropriate touching.

A 60 Minutes piece on the allegations soon followed and by that point the Special Victims Division of the New York Police Department had stepped in to investigate. Only one of the two cases that the NYPD was looking into was still within the statute of limitations. The detectives eventually closed the case without filing any charges, and Batali maintained denial of any assault, though he apologized for "deeply inappropriate" behavior. Criminal charges or not, the damage had been done and by May 2018, the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group was working to cut ties with the chef.

As Batali became a bad apple in the eyes of many, the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group started to pick up that same reputation. According to Batali's business partner Joe Bastianich, the harm from the news reports was almost immediate. He told New York Magazine,

"On the day in December that it broke, I had to walk into these restaurants and talk about these allegations."

Bastianich added that some employees were crying over the news, while others felt betrayed. He also noted that the allegations against his former partner were "horrific" and that he "felt terrible" after learning of them. Chef Nancy Silverton, who founded four restaurants in California with Batali, said that while she considered him a friend, her decision to separate was immediate.
