In planning a multi-million dollar renovation of Miami Beach’s Fontainebleau Resort, top tier restaurants were offered prime real estate at the massive property to provide a Las Vegas style dining experience for hotel guests who can choose from a variety of 5 star destinations without leaving the hotel grounds. Chef Scott Conant’s Scarpetta restaurant specializes in rustic Italian fare and takes it’s name from the crust of bread used to mop up the sauce after a particularly delicious bowl of spaghetti. While the chef is often spotted on Food Network’s culinary game show “Chopped,” his restaurants truly showcase the scope of his culinary skills.

Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau Resort offers breathtaking ocean views and professional and attentive service. Meals start out with that signature crusty bread served with a variety of spreads to enjoy with a glass of wine from the extensive collection. Highlights from the menu include creamy polenta, any of the house-made pastas and some truly decadent desserts. While the music in the dining room might overwhelm more intimate conversation, this is still a perfect spot for date night with someone special or an evening worth sharing with friends.
