On my visits to NY, I must head over to Scarpetta for a meal. I dine at the bar (getting a seat can be difficult) where the bartenders are always friendly and helpful. I'm not a fan of Italian restaurants because I think I can cook a better pasta dish myself. However, this place has sucked me in on their bread basket that includes delicious stromboli. Yum. I usually start the evening with the creamy polenta and then try a new pasta dish. During my last visit, I tried the black farfalle with lobster. This dish looks a bit scary because it's so dark but it's quite good. In the past, I've ordered the spaghetti entree that is quite popular. I must admit it's really good as well. The dish definitely inspired me to change my own recipe. I've only had dessert here once. I'm usually too stuff to eat anything else. If you have a chance, definitely try this place. Heads up, it's not cheap and my recent meal with 2 glasses of wine and tip surpassed $100.
