Scarpetta Offers a Six-course Menu For Local Truffle-Shufflers
By Nycole Sariol
It’s finally here – truffle Season that is. And while everyday should be spent celebrating the truffle family, Scarpetta, South Florida’s crème-de-la-crème of Italian cuisine in the Fontainebleau, has made up for lost time with a limited-time six-course menu praising the glorified fungus on a nightly basis. From now till March, Chef Marlon Rambaran will relish diners willing to shell out $295 per person with dishes such as Ricotta Truffle Ravioli and Creamy Polenta with fricassée of truffled mushrooms. A steep price, we know. But all is fair in love and war, especially when garnished with shaved white truffle on top. No? If the price of delicacy hasn’t scared you yet, consider the sommelier selected wine pairing offered at $115 per person to accompany your busy night of truffle shuffling.
