LDV Hospitality is slated to open its signature modern Italian restaurant, Scarpetta, later this summer, located at 210 W Rittenhouse Square at the The Rittenhouse Hotel. Scarpetta’s bi-level space will be open for lunch and dinner, serving a menu of Scarpetta’s signature dishes, as well as a selection of new menu items made specifically for this location – highlighting Philadelphia’s unique local ingredients. “We’re honored to be joining Philadelphia’s incredible dining scene,” says LDV Hospitality’s President/Founder John Meadow. “There is so much talent and energy in this city, and we look forward to being among some of the best chefs and restaurateurs in the country.”
LDV Hospitality’s iconic Scarpetta made its way out east with Scarpetta Beach, the beachfront version of its original Meatpacking District location. The soulful Italian hotspot delivers the same signature classics on the menu, in addition to more seasonally influenced dishes and local produce and seafood selections paired perfectly with a robust Italian wine list. Inspired by Gurney’s sprawling 1,000 ft private beach, Scarpetta Beach boasts an airy, mid-century modern aesthetic infused with the Indigo and seaside hues of the Resort’s surroundings. The 110-seat interior dining room and private dining space is lined with French doors leading out to the restaurant’s outdoor terrace, which seats an additional 100, and provides spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The philosophy of Scarpetta’s kitchen is one of creating bold flavors by amplifying the essence of seasonal ingredients. The signature pastas are made in-house daily and are paired with the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients. Scarpetta’s famous Spaghetti Tomato & Basil is nothing short of classic simplicity in both taste and preparation. The understated, yet elegant approach to design creates an environment that is simultaneously chic, welcoming, and inspiring.
