i finally made it to scarpetta for a lovely dinner with my beau.

scarpetta 1 these are the accompaniments to the bread.  i accidentally took a bite of the eggplant before snapping this pic.  sorry (not really.  it was really good).scarpetta 2 the spaghetti, which is possibly the most famous dish on the menu.  and may have been the reason we were there in the first place.  if a bowl of spaghetti was ever worth $23, this was it.  it was light and yet filling, and had so much rich yet fresh flavor.  mmmmm.
