Scott Conant’s Meatpacking District Italian resto, Scarpetta offers food for every palate. He presents a high-end atmosphere without being stuffy. The dining room is always buzzing. Scarpetta is a beautiful space with amazing wine and terrific food. It’s always a worthwhile experience!

Scott found a formula and he’s sticking with it! He followed up New York’s success with opening Scarpetta in Toronto, Miami, Las Vegas, and LA.

MY CHOW FAVES:


Let’s start with the yummy bread basket.

Tuna Susci with Marinated Veggies- The fish is fresh and served beautifully.

Scallops with Mushrooms- Seared to perfection!

Polenta with Truffled Mushrooms- Hands down the best polenta I’ve ever had….silky, smooth, and creamy.

Short Ribs with Farro- The flavor combination is fantastic!

Duck and Foie Gras Ravioli- Rich but not too heavy.

Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil- Sounds simple but it’s simply delicious!

Branzino- Crispy on top and flaky on the inside.

MY SIP: Impressive wine list with many reasonably priced selections.

CHAT: Scarpetta has a pretty extensive vegetarian menu.

I like starting things off here, then usually head to Soho House for a cocktail. After that, if I want to go out, I hit up one of the MEPA/Chelsea standards- Boom Boom/Le Bain, SL, Darby, 1Oak, Avenue, etc.

Scarpetta- 355 West 14th St / 212-691-0555
