Description

Village Voice's Description

After carefully honing his menu at L'Impero and Alto, chef Scott Conant has mastered his repertoire of adapted Italian dishes -- many from northern areas like Alto Adige -- to a fine sheen. Braised baby goat remains the center of the menu, but we've found the pastas are even better, including anolotti dal plin, a Piemonte recipe that wraps pureed veal, cabbage, and truffles in misshapen and delicate raviolis that are beyond wonderful; and the even-richer duck and foie gras raviolis. His signature pasta remains a homemade spaghetti in a light tomato sauce. The name of the restaurant means 'little shoe'; a refers to the pieces of bread you'll use to scoop every ever last bit of sauce.

    Chef Scott Conant's new meatpacker Scarpetta, named after the small piece of bread used to scoop sauces, knocked us out, especially the agnolotti dal plin - irregular pasta pouches bulging with a puree of cabbage, truffles, and veal.
