Gordon Ramsay isn't about to get into an all-out food fight with fellow chef Mario Batali – but that didn't stop the outspoken Hell's Kitchen star from tossing a little mud at his rival on Wednesday.
"It's really sad. I have never met Mario Batali," Ramsay told reporters when asked about a supposed long-running feud between the two men.
On Tuesday, the New York Post's Page Six reported that Batali had banned Ramsay from eating at his restaurants – including Manhattan's Babbo and the Spotted Pig – after Ramsay made up an unflattering nickname for him.

Chef Gordon Ramsay has a new target for his famous temper: Prince Charles.
The Hell's Kitchen star, who has notched up 12 Michelin stars and a string of successful restaurants, has condemned some of the prince's line of organic produce for being "boring" and "processed."
The Prince, 59, established Duchy Originals to market a wide range of organic foods – from oatmeal crackers to meat.
But Ramsay, 41, tells the magazine of the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph, "I am upset with him. When I looked at his Duchy food I was gobsmacked, amazed, dumbfounded at what I discovered."
