going to scopa tonight. any recommendations?
The chef is Vincent Scotto who is known from his tenure at Fresco by Scotto (even though he is unrelated to that Scotto family).
He is known for his Pizza Margherita which he is still serving at Scopa and it's still delicious. He's also doing a white pizza with mashed potatoes on it which is also quite good. He does a terrific salad with roasted beets, Maytag blue, spicy pecans and baby spinach. He's doing a pasta with carmelized onions that is absolutely delicious.
I never ate at Fresco by Scotto, but I did eat at Antonio where he was consulting chef for several months when it opened. I feel pretty comfortable ordering anything off his menu.
Hope you'll let us know how your meal was.
