Late Night With Scarpetta and Fette Sau

By

Yes, Murray Hill drunkard trough Ziggiz is closing earlier (at 10 p.m.), but theres also some good news in the late-night dining realm. We already told you about the 5 a.m. burger at Spitzers Corner, and now it turns out Fette Sau serves $3 late-night pulled-pork sliders. And heres something truly excellent according to a release, Scarpetta is (starting next Tuesday) introducing a late-night menu from Tuesday through Friday, 10 p.m. till 1 a.m. Since its bar is such a pleasure to eat at, Scarpetta has always seemed like a place that should be open late-night, and now it will indeed serve tonno style crudo (a harkening back to Scott Conants old Bar Tonno) as well as half-portions of dinner dishes. In addition to the menu items below, there will be specially selected wines, cheeses, and desserts such as the yogurt semifreddo served with salted fruit.
