Mario Batali pleads not guilty to assault charge at arraignment in Boston

Mario Batali has pleaded not guilty to a charge of indecent assault and battery in connection with a 2017 allegation that he grabbed and forcibly tried to kiss a woman at a Boston bar.

The celebrity chef, 58, was then released on his own recognizance after appearing at the municipal court in Boston, where the judge ordered Batali to stay away from his accuser.

Batali nodded, but did not speak, the Associated Press reported.

The proceedings lasted only minutes. Batali is reportedly not obligated to appear at a subsequent hearing on July 12.

Mario Batali was arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery in Boston Municipal Court in connection with a 2017 incident at a Boston restaurant.

BATALI ONCE SAID A ‘RECKONING’ WAS COMING FOR SEXUAL HARASSERS

The charges originally stem from an alleged incident that took place on March 31, 2017, at the Towne Stove and Spirits restaurant in Boston. The woman had claimed she recognized Batali eating at the bar and attempted to take a photo, only for him to beckon her over and later attempt to kiss her while grabbing her chest and touching her groin, as The Boston Globe reported.

The same woman had filed a civil complaint against Batali in August, according to the outlet.

Batali’s lawyer had shared a statement with Fox News on Monday, denying the assault charges stemming from the Boston allegations, saying they were “without merit.”

“Mr. Batali denies the allegations in both this criminal complaint and the civil complaint filed last August,” stated Batali’s attorney Anthony Fuller in a statement shared with Fox News. “The charges, brought by the same individual without any new basis, are without merit. He intends to fight the allegations vigorously and we expect the outcome to fully vindicate Mr. Batali.”

‘SERIAL CROTCH GRAZER’: THE BATALI ACCUSATIONS

Lawyers for the woman, meanwhile, say Batali must be brought to justice.

“Mr. Batali must be held accountable criminally and civilly for his despicable acts,” attorneys Eric Baum and Matthew Fogelman said statement issued on Monday, per the Associated Press.

Earlier this year, two separate cases of alleged sexual misconduct on the part of Batali were closed in New York.

Lawsuit claims Buffalo Wild Wings refused to serve black customers because they ‘don’t give good tips’

Westlake Legal Group buffalo-wild-wings Lawsuit claims Buffalo Wild Wings refused to serve black customers because they 'don't give good tips' Michael Hollan fox-news/food-drink/food/restaurants fox-news/food-drink/food/fast-food fox news fnc/food-drink fnc article ac8cea71-944b-5a56-b3b3-bf16fa49bf11

A former Buffalo Wild Wings employee claims that their managers allowed employees to discriminate against black customers.

Gary Lovelace reportedly worked as a cook at the Overland Park, Kan., location for 12 years before being fired in October 2017. He claims that his troubles began when a new general manager was hired in late 2016 or early 2017.

Now, he’s suing Buffalo Wild Wings and their parent company, Inspire Brands, for creating a “racially hostile work environment,” The Kansas City Star reports. According to the suit, managers at the restaurant made derogatory comments about African-American customers. They also reportedly allowed employees to refuse service to these customers.

Lovelace’s lawyer, Gerald Gray, claims that their reasoning was “blacks don’t give good tips,” The Kansas City Star reports.

The suit also alleges that Lovelace was once referred to as the “angry black man,” and that he was also discriminated against because of his age and disability.

MICHIGAN BUFFALO WILD WINGS MANAGER FIRED FOR CHOKING DRUNK MAN IN RESTAURANT

A spokesperson for Buffalo Wild Wings supplied Fox News with the following statement: “While we do not comment on pending litigation specifically, we take the allegations very seriously and are conducting an internal investigation. Buffalo Wild Wings values an inclusive environment and we have no tolerance for discrimination of any kind.”

In response to the story, someone claiming to be a former employee backed up certain elements of Lovelace’s claims. In a Facebook post where she describes him as a “sweet and kind man,” the social media user claims that the restaurant was not an accepting environment to all races. According to the post, “The victim here is a sweet and kind man, who always brightened up the shift and it hurts my heart that he was discriminated against by the staff who should have been supporting him.”

Another user responded to her post, claiming to be a current employee. According to them, a new general manager is working at the restaurant, who they describe as “super woke and sweet.” Their post says, “I just do not want a good woman, the new GM, to get negative attention for the wrongdoings of the management before her.”

It’s unclear why the general manager working at the restaurant when Lovelace was fired is no longer at that location.

Fox News reached out to Gary Lovelace’s lawyer for comment, but he was unable to provide one at this time.

FDA takes aim at 50-year-old guideline on frozen cherry pies

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6037201233001_6037063491001-vs FDA takes aim at 50-year-old guideline on frozen cherry pies Steve Rappoport fox-news/newsedge/politics fox-news/newsedge fox-news/food-drink/food fox news fnc/food-drink fnc David Nath article 14d4e322-d19b-57ba-a899-f1a322717e50

As both candidate and commander-in-chief, President Trump has made deregulation a cornerstone of his domestic agenda.  But if life is a bowl of cherries for some industries, it’s the pits for cherry pie makers because of out-of-date government regulations. Now President Trump wants to sweeten the process for bakers by revoking guidelines for frozen cherry pies.

The regulations say cherry pies must be made of 25 percent cherries by weight, with no more than 15 percent flawed or blemished. But those standards don’t exist for any other baked good using fruit, and Rob Mackie, President of the American Bakers Association, says the rules are unnecessary. “The pie bakers that are making frozen cherry pies are exceeding the standards, and so there’s not been an issue,” he said. “It really helps to unshackle the industry from the regulatory overreach.”

The Food and Drug Administration is now making a big push to give bakers more flexibility when it comes to whipping up sweet treats, saying in a statement, “This is a down payment on a comprehensive effort to modernize food standards to reduce regulatory burden and removed old-fashioned barriers to innovation.”

Pie makers don’t expect customers to notice any significant changes in quality or taste. “Our pie manufacturers are closely connected to their customers and to their consumers,” Mackie says. “Their hotlines would light up. Our consumers are not shy about telling us what they love about our products but also where we might be lacking.”

No matter how you slice it, pie is much more than a guilty pleasure or comfort food for many consumers.  “The pie consumer, particularly, is very passionate and very vocal about what they expect,” Mackie said.

Cherry pie reform is just the beginning of the administration’s push to ease food standards. Next up on the agenda? French dressing.

So we can consider the great pie debate just a warm-up.

A pop-up restaurant in Covent Garden, London, is running the promotion. Any guest or group of guests that bring their own table will be able to eat for free. Of course, guests without a table will still be served, but they’ll have to make a charitable donation.

The restaurant will be called Trattoria Birra Moretti, Metro.co.uk reports. If free food isn’t enough to bring guests, acclaimed Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo will be in the kitchen. Guests will be provided with a free six-course meal, as long as they are strong enough to carry a table across town (or can convince several friends to help them).

“If carrying a table through central London doesn’t bring you closer with your friends, then my delicious cooking definitely will!” Contaldo said of the event, The Independent reports. The restaurant says that any sort of table will do, but they recommend that guests bring one that seats four people.

Missouri man says White Castle patron shot at him for honking his horn in drive-thru line

A driver at a Missouri White Castle drive-thru told Fox News that another driver allegedly shot at him because he honked his horn while waiting on line.

“I ordered a couple double cheeseburgers, your usual combo meal, and was just going to head home and have dinner with my girlfriend and it just became a little more eventful than I expected,” the 51-year-old St. Louis man said.

The victim, who asked to remain anonymous because the shooter has not yet been arrested, said that he honked his horn because the car in front of him was taking an exceptionally long time at the window.

“I think I was sitting there for about 10 to 15 minutes, and with no one else in line I thought that was a little unreasonable,” the victim said.

HUNTER FILMED ORDERING MCDONALD’S WHILE CARRYING DEAD DEER OVER HIS SHOULDER

He added that “it almost appeared that he was having some sort of dispute with the restaurant or someone in the restaurant.”

The man said because there were only two cars in the drive-thru line, that “made it all the more frustrating that it was taking so long,” adding, “That’s why I honked in the first place.”

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department told Fox News the incident happened Thursday night around 9. The victim said it all started at a White Castle on Gravois Avenue in south St. Louis.

The man said that after he honked, the other driver at the drive-thru jumped out of his car and started yelling what sounded like profanity, although he couldn’t make out exactly what the driver was saying because he’d kept his windows closed.

He said the other driver then got back inside the car and pulled over “to the side of the parking lot as if he was waiting for a large order.”

The 51-year-old man thought the confrontation was over so he picked up his food and started to drive away, adding that “it wasn’t until I pulled out to one of the main streets and headed home that I realized he had other intentions.”

The man said he realized that the other driver was following him. He also said that driver soon fired a shot at him.

“I heard the bullet come through the door,” the victim said.

“And then I got home and I was still kind of in shock and had difficulty believing what happened,” he continued.

The man said he didn’t feel anything right away but once he got home he realized the bullet had grazed his leg.

“I noticed at that point also that my windshield had been shattered which could have been possibly a second shot or something that was thrown at the vehicle. And then I saw a hole in the door and saw my jeans that I was wearing had a hole ripped in them where I was grazed.”

“I suffered about a two-inch scratch in the back of my left thigh where the bullet passed and then embedded in the seat,” the victim said.

“People certainly told me that I had gotten very lucky,” he said.

The victim said he hopes the man who shot at him gets caught soon.

“I think he poses a danger to other people,” he said.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department told Fox News it’s seekingr an “unknown black male, 20 to 25-year old” who is around 180 pounds with a medium complexion and “low afro-style hair.”

The man said he thinks the security cameras in the White Castle parking lot could help police with their investigation.

“I think this was a random case of road rage,” he said. “But it does reflect a certain reality that people living in St. Louis understand, you always have to be aware of your surroundings.”
