Award-winning chef Scott Conant’s wildly popular Italian restaurant remains a solid choice for classic, home-cooked dishes like his grandmother used to make. You’ll be tempted to dive in to the bread basket filled with stuffed rolls and pillowy focaccia, but save room for starters like the creamy polenta with fricassee of truffled mushrooms. Though if you order just one thing, let it be the tomato-basil spaghetti the restaurant has become known for. It’s served perfectly al dente in a neat, slurpable mound. Oh, and that bread you have left over? Use it to sop up every last drop of tomato sauce.

Do believe the hype: Scarpetta's pomodoro pasta is the best thing you'll ever eat. The flavors are great, the pasta is cooked to perfection and the portion well sized—filling but still small enough to keep me from feeling guilty for polishing off an entire bowl of pasta. This dish and the restaurant's take on a Negroni are what I want my last meal on earth to be.
