Scarpetta is an unusual addition to Manhattan's Meatpacking District, home to too many overhyped, overdone, overrun velvet rope restaurants. At this inviting modern trattoria you won't have to fight your way past a clipboard gatekeeper or pay through the nose for just passable food. Instead, expect polished professional service, a real foodie crowd, and some of the city's most heavenly pasta (don't miss the Marsala-sauced duck and foie gras–filled ravioli). Chef-owner Scott Conant, one of New York's most celebrated Italian chefs, pulled a Houdini act a while back abandoning his restaurants in Midtown (Alto and L'Impero) before reappearing a year later with this new Downtown spot. The airy wood-shrouded dining room features a retractable roof, offering exhaust-free alfresco dining. Entrées, like fork-tender roast baby chicken in a sauce made from its liver, tend to be more earthy and rustic than the delicate pastas. Desserts, including a delicious caramelized apple tart with a polenta crust, find a more solid middle ground between upscale and homey.

Open Sundays through Thursdays 5:30 to 11:30 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 5:30 pm to midnight.
