For lovers of good pasta, don’t miss the Scarpetta. Not often visited by out-of-town tourists, this restaurant is tucked away in Chelsea, a gem of a neighborhood on Manhattan’s lower west side.

Chef Scott Conant’s menu displays his passion for creating unexpected and very tasty dishes. It goes beyond simple Italian dishes and brings in creative and diverse options such as raw tuna with touches of Japanese cuisine. Delicious!!! 

Adding to the experience is the impeccable service as well as an excellent wine list.  Scarpetta has received many accolades, a rating of three stars New York Times, and a nomination for best new restaurant by the James Beard Foundation country in 2009.

Besides the great food, the restaurant offers a sleek but inviting decor, making for a very satisfying dining experience.

Try it out, and you will not regret it!
