Scarpetta Beverly Hills at Montage
Although I have had the privilege of enjoying Scarpetta’s menu, I was never seated in the actual restaurant. I enjoyed my dishes at Ten Pound’s, a private and intimate area on the second floor of the Montage, which by the way, is an amazing way to share a dinner with friends.
Scarpetta’s breadbasket was hands-down the best breadbasket I have had thus far! It includes an assorted variety of breads. One that’s name has skipped my mind, but its taste is highly unforgettable, containing meat and cheese, it’s difficult to miss. It’s also difficult to share!
We ordered short rib agnolotti (to die for!), caviar, spaghetti, tagliatelle topped with white truffles (specially made since I am a truffle pig, I was told it is normally not on the menu). The grilled octopus was probably the best I will ever have.
What I enjoyed most on the menu was the appetizer of perfectly crisp house-smoked bacon served with cheese and pecans.
For dessert we ordered one of everything on the menu, the vanilla caramel budino was my favorite (salted cookies served with a type of camel/toffee-topped custard).
Life would be even more amazing if I had the luxury of eating here everyday, or at least a little more often.
Hi! My name is Catherine Denise, at the risk of sounding a bit cheesy I am going to share a little of my obsession with you… My love affair with food began as a very young child; my oldest and fondest memories consistently include food, family, and friends. As always, I credit my food obsession to growing up in the Philippines, my huge Nebraska family, but mostly the many influences from my beautiful, Filipino mother. Around fifth grade my father was stationed to Las Vegas and there I was exposed to an entirely new cuisine, where my obsession with restaurants began. I have been known to spend every last dime I had on a meal and wholeheartedly believe that is how everyone should live! I love all types of food, mostly healthy, but with a dash – or more – of the bad! No one can live without a little bad! Food, to me, is comfort. It’s something that can bring a smile to your face and make your heart feel good. It’s something you share with a neighbor or gift to a new friend. It’s something you make for someone when you can’t find the words to say “I’m sorry” or “I am so in love with you.” Food is something that can heal a broken heart or help you celebrate success! It’s the one thing in this world that binds us all together and that we cannot live without.
