This is the Greenwich, CT home of Joseph V. Bastianich and Deana K. Bastianich.
He was recently in the news due to a class-action lawsuit brought against himself and Mario Bateli, the celebrity chef and owner of several New York restaurants. In New York federal court in Manhattan, Mr. Bateli and his partner Mr. Bastianich were sued and accused of cheating workers of part of their tips for serving wine. He and his associate Joseph Bastianich agreed to pay $5.25 million to settle the class-action lawsuit, according to court papers. Servers at restaurants including Babbo, Casa Mono and Tarry Lodge sued in 2010 alleging their employers violated the Fair Labor Standards Act -- in part by pocketing gratuities equal to as much as 5 percent of nightly wine sales. "Mr. Batali, Mr. Bastianich, and their restaurants unlawfully confiscated a portion of their workers' hard-earned tips in order to supplement their own profits," employees said in their complaint. The settlement agreement, filed March 5, is subject to approval by a federal judge. "The matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of all parties, Rachel Bien, one of the employees' lawyers, said today by e-mail. The case is Capsolas v. Pasta Resources Inc., 10-cv-5595, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
Mr. Bastianich is the son of Lidia Matticchio Bastianich, a Croatian-American chef, author, and restaurateur. He graduated from Boston College in 1989 with a degree in political science.
