“I’m very excited to open Scarpetta at The Cosmopolitan and in Las Vegas, one of the country’s most exciting cities,” says Conant. “I hope that guests enjoy Scarpetta’s soulful menu which will be comprised of the signature and popular dishes, as well as several new selections. Our wish is that people always leave happy and satisfied.”
An Italian expression that means “little shoe,” or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish, Scarpetta represents the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to its very last taste. While grounded in Italian tradition, Conant is recognized for his modern interpretations highlighting the use of seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients. A 3,000-bottle wine cellar, with over 500 selections, emphasizes old world varietals that span Italy’s regions from Tuscany and Piemonte, to Puglia and Lombardia. French wines and a few nods to Spain can also be found on the wine list. Scarpetta effuses warmth and conviviality creating an environment where guests will feel inspired to savor the taste of each dish, sopping up even the last bit of sauce with a little bread.
Scarpetta is situated within P3 Commons at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, an innovative neighborhood of restaurant experiences that convey the makings of the perfect dinner party. Not only welcoming and highly personal, but spontaneous with a delightful sense of discovery, the P3 culinary collection embodies a synergistic approach to the modern face of Las Vegas dining.
