Platt visits Scott Conant's Scarpetta this week, equates the man to a prophet, and gives the Mepa restaurant three stars: "His high-minded, almost priestly brand of Italian cooking hasn’t changed very much, but in this more casual downtown setting, the food seems more enjoyable and less precious...During his uptown period, Conant kept trying, in an increasingly obsessive way, to shoehorn his talents into a certain prim, Michelin-approved sensibility. At Scarpetta, the opposite is true." [NYM]
