- Skip the trendsetters and scenesters by going early, when the bar area opens at 4pm. Nicely set spots, including placemats and silverware, mean the bartender won't get grumpy when you order food.
- The dining room's fully retractable roof (!) lets in natural light, but the small outdoor patio and cafe area near the bar feel less staid, especially later, when the Meatpacking District really gets cooking.
- Rosemary potato chips make a glass of barolo even better at the 100-plus-year old Mahogany bar, imported from France.
In a Greek revival townhouse on the edge of the Meatpacking District, LDV Hospitality brings a deft touch and unwavering passion to creating food that is unexpected and soulful. An Italian expression that means “little shoe” – or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish — Scarpetta represents the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to its very last taste. Amongst many accolades, Scarpetta NYC received a three-star review from The New York Times and a nomination for Best New Restaurant in the country from the James Beard Foundation in 2009.
