I would follow Eos up with dinner at Scarpetta (Fbleu H). Scarpetta presented us with very difficult choices. Braised short ribs v creamy polenta? The famous spaghetti v scallops... I'm a short rib fan but the polenta with truffle mushrooms looked too good to pass up and it delivered. Just a great, tasty dish. I was all over the Scarpetta Spaghetti hype and convinced my table mates to order it. I really wanted to see if the hype was legit but figured someone had to try those scallops. They were very good but I wanted more polenta. I was able to sample a nice portion of the spaghetti and didn't find it to be anything out of this world. I ended the meal with a really nice panna cotta.
Both restaurants offered impressive spice menus and both delivered. Great settings and service. I would check them both out before Spice ends.
