LDV Hospitality’s Scarpetta Restaurant at the Rittenhouse brings the signature bold Italian flavors to Philadelphia that it is known for at its Manhattan, Hamptons, Las Vegas and Miami locations. Scarpetta’s employs an understated-yet-elegant approach, creating an experience where guests feel as though they are at a stylish and welcoming dinner party. Join Chef Jorge Espinoza for a menu of highlights from Scarpetta’s new tasting menu: Tuna Susci (marinated vegetables and preserved truffle); Braised Octopus (artichoke, celery and charred scallion); Ricotta Carpellacci (honshemiji mushroom and preserved truffle); Turbot (leeks, endive and salsa verde); Dry-Aged Strip Loin (trumpet mushroom, cipollini onion, potato and truffled spinach marinated vegetables and preserved truffle); and Chef’s selection of dessert. Born and raised in Gueretaro, Jorge began his kitchen career working at Monkey Bar as a butcher before joining the crew at Tapika to work with David Walzog, whom he considers his mentor. Jorge then cooked under Chef Scott Conant at L’imperó and from there, the team opened Alto and Totto Il Giorno in the Hamptons, followed by Scarpetta in 2008 which received a James Beard nomination in 2008 for Best New Restaurant in America as well as a coveted three-star review from The New York Times.
