Since we decided that we would come up to NYC for our anniversary the one thing that I really wanted to do was try Scott Conant’s spaghetti dish at Scarpetta. It seems like everyone just raves about this dish and I’m always seeing it come up on the Food Network. So I figured this would be a good place to go for our Anniversary dinner so I made a reservation, a month in advance!
We made our way to the restaurant from our hotel via the subway and got there a little bit early for our reservation so we sat at the bar and enjoyed a nice drink. After 10 or 15 minutes we were shown to our table and had one of the best meals of our lives. Not only was the food excelent but the service was out of this world. We will be back again. But enough about that, onto the food porn!
Braised Short Ribs of Beef – vegetable & farro risotto
Spaghetti – tomato & basil
Dry Aged Sirloin – baby vegetables, potatoes & pickled shallots
Amedei Chocolate Cake – salted caramel gelato & chocolate butterscotch
Raw Yellowtail – olio di zenzero & flaked sea salt
Duck & Foie Gras Ravioli – marsala reduction
Halibut – spring vegetables, preserved lemon & almond broth
Coconut Panna Cotta – guava sauce & caramelized pineapple
They also sent us a nice surprise dessert!
After all of that we were totally miserable, but in a very very good way! Thank you Scarpetta for a great meal and making our 1st anniversary meal one we’ll never forget!
