The Spaghetti at Scarpetta

[caption id=“” align=“aligncenter” width=“500” caption=“Spaghetti With Tomato and Basil ($26)”][/caption] It really all started with a heavenly dish of Duck Foie Gras Ravioli in Meatpacking District. So when I heard Scott Conant’s Scarpetta was coming to the left coast back in October - and no further than across the Canon Drive Beverly Hills parkway from Bouchon - I became elated that I would finally get to try the famous spaghetti. What’s more, I wouldn’t have to reserve one of my meals to do so (and commit a “repeat”) on my next trip to New York. It’s a $26 entree in an upscale, self-described “Old Hollywood-style” interior. Personally, it reminded me more of New York - but I have prior associations and attachments. The pasta in Beverly Hills, though? Perfectly al dente. It’s made with semolina flour and zero-zero pasta. The fresh basil brought the other dimension to the vibrant tomato, and I found myself scarfing down the European-sized portion of noodles and sauce. If I visit Scarpetta often and never order another dish, I would be just as happy.
