Scarpetta Opening in the Rittenhouse Hotel
This summer, Scarpetta, a high end Italian restaurant with locations in New York City, the Hamptons, Las Vegas and Miami will be coming to the west side of Rittenhouse Square and the Rittenhouse Hotel. The restaurant will replace the Smith and Wollensky steakhouse which closed last year.
Scarpetta is run by LDV Hospitality and is described as Modern Italian. The restaurant will be a bi-level space open for lunch and dinner. LDV has more than 10 restaurant concepts stretching from New York to Puerto Rico. If the LDV name rings a bell, it might be because they had three restaurants at the now shuttered Revel Casino in Atlantic City (American Cut, Azure and Lugo Italian).
