Episode: “The Summer Man”: Season 4, Episode 8
The Scene: Bethany, Don, Betty, and Henry all dine together like one giant, happy, blended family! So modern! If only. Betty needs some time alone to process Don with a younger version of her.
Today: The décor at Barbetta is landmarked so it looks as it did in 1964-65. It remains a date destination, and for some, THE datestination. Owner Laura Maioglio, who took over in the 1960s from her father who founded the restaurant, said that they see many proposals a year. “We once had someone ask if the ring could be baked into a cake,” Maioglio said. “We had to decline.” The agnolotti and minestrone giardiniera have been on the menu since 1906, if you want to taste the history. Also, The Departed was filmed here.
