A woman who has accused celebrity chef Mario Batali of sexual misconduct anonymously has now gone on the record in a newly released Discovery+ documentary. "Batali: The Fall of a Superstar Chef" premiered on the streaming service on Thursday.

In the documentary, a former hostess at one of Batali’s restaurants, Eva DeVirgilis, accuses the chef of sexually assaulting her in 2005.

According to the documentary, DeVirgilis previously told a part of her story anonymously on an episode of "60 Minutes," but has not gone on the record with her allegations before.

The New York Times reported that DeVirgilis was one of more than 20 former employees at Batali’s restaurants who was awarded a $600,000 settlement for claims of sexual misconduct in 2021.
