Tullett Prebon Will Not Take This Hitler/Stalin Talk Lying Down

From: [redacted at Tullett Prebon]
To: Dealbreaker
Subject: Mario Batali

Company policy at TULLETTS, Batali restaurants are now banned. Good luck fat boy.

If that sounds harsh, consider the restraint it took not to head over to Del Posto and take Batali for a spin, i.e. TP’s go-to move, which is coming next, if the comments are not recanted. Anyway, not to minimize anyone’s feelings or play peacemaker, but, technically, Batali said “bankers,” not brokers, are Hitler/Stalin-esque, so…not really cause for TP to take offense. Feel free to continue patronizing his restaurants and cheering for him on reruns of Iron Chef.

    Apparently Tullett never had Hitler's Wurstbrot or Stalin's Draniki

  16. Pierce says:

    Some of the best clients for futures brokerages and these hybrid style groups are bank desks and traders, both foreign and domestic, that don't clear cme etc. or for a variety of reasons don't want to deal with their internal desks.

    So fraternite tull pre.

    TP Broker: "I eat at a different restaurant every day."

    Propane Trader: "I don't tip either."

  22. davidrusso says:

    I had no idea brokers were hitting up Batali's places in enough numbers to make this a meaningful threat…

    I guess Mario added 8-balls and handys to the dessert menu without giving me a look.

  23. whowhawhen says:

    Listen, you'll have to excuse me. I have a lunch meeting with Cliff Huxtable at the Four Seasons in 20 minutes.

  24. Show Me The Money says:

    The link to the "related" story (see below) just goes back to the Batali article. I'm feeling like a little bait-and-switch happened here. Also, I'm not exactly sure how it is related to Mario Batali, but I'm dying to find out.

    I honestly thought Tullet Prebon was a shoe store, like Pierce & Pierce.

  26. Guest says:

    It's actually Mullet LeBon. His exclusion from Duran Duran was one of the few examples of failed nepotism in the 1980s.

  27. Guest says:

    I bet Mario Batali makes more money than Tullet's.

    Tullet's = JT Marlin

  28. LateNight HungerPain says:

    Tullett Prebon sounds like Truffles and Bonbons.

  29. Nick says:

    1.Americans make Hitler comparisons to everything and everyone they don’t like, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, and the chosen target of the month are always made out to be worse than Hitler
    2.Gerry Schwartz compared raising his taxes to Hitler’s invasion of Poland
    3.The comparison of Bankers to Hitler is doing them a favor considering the reality of hedge fund managers like Dr. Herman is a mass murder, and Jerry Epstein is a child molester

    So what’s not fair?
