Italian

NYC-import Scarpetta, which received a James Beard nomination for Best New Restaurant when it opened in 2008, is delivering its brand of upscale Italian to Philadelphia in the landmark Rittenhouse Hotel. Don’t expect a clone though: helmed by chefs Jon Oh and Jorge Espinoza, the LDV Hospitality restaurant serves a modern Italian menu unique to the city. Scarpetta fans afraid of change can expect the classics, like the superbly simple house-made spaghetti with tomato and basil, and braised short ribs, as well as an Italian-centric wine list. Steps away from Rittenhouse park, the contemporary space seats 150 and is outfitted with white oak and marble and leather accents.
