Best New York Switcheroo2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »

Chef de cuisine Michael Pirolo's execution of Scott Conant's dishes at Scarpetta is as close to the real thing as humanly possible. We honestly can't tell the difference between eating his legendary spaghetti in NYC versus Miami. The real test is in the tasting, and when tiny rolls of tuna "susci" ($17) show up on an Italian menu, we give pause, but not for long. That's the thing at Scarpetta -- Pirolo does everything well. The duck and foie gras ravioli ($26) is just as impressive as the local yellowtail snapper ($32) with asparagus, speck, and fresh basil. Seasonal specials such as zucchini blossoms ($18), stuffed with sweet Maine shrimp, mortadella, pistachios, and ricotta cheese, show off the true meaning of delicious.
