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.


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
