For a long time, Los Angeles chefs had the city to themselves. Outsiders might have turned up for a guest chef turn or two, but never much more than that. But then a couple of years ago that all changed, and Los Angeles was suddenly as attractive as Las Vegas to restaurateurs with satellite restaurants to shop. Fancy that. And now, following Thomas Keller ( Bouchon ), Tom Colicchio ( Craft ), Laurent Tourondel ( BLT Steak ), and José Andrés ( Bazaar ), to name a few, comes Scott Conant with Scarpetta , the fourth iteration of his high-end Italian restaurant in New York's meatpacking district.

Scarpetta, in Italian, means “little shoe,” or the shape bread takes when used to sop up every last bite. And you're bound to do just that at Scott Conant's Italian eatery, a hit not just in Vegas, but in New York, Miami and Beverly Hills, as well. Both rustic and haute, Scarpetta is rich in modern interpretations of Italian classics. Sample light appetizers like tuna susci with marinated vegetables and preserved truffles, followed by house-made pasta - go for simple spaghetti in tomato sauce with basil, or smoked ricotta casonei with pistachios and poppy seeds - all of it, simply sublime.

Chef Scott Conant's D.O.C.G. is simpler and more rustic than Scarpetta, its sister restaurant next door. But don't let that fool you. Officially a wine bar (named after the highest level of Italian wine, Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita), D.O.C.G's fare is as good as it gets -   few bites in, you'll be swooning as much over what you're eating as on anything you're sipping. Standouts from the refined Italian menu include the margherita pizza with a thin, chewy crust topped with tomatoes that pop with flavor, and the imminently shareable grilled filone - thick slices of bread served fondue-style with truffle oil and creamy duck egg. And, with 3,000 bottles of wine to choose from, the perfect pairing is guaranteed.
