Going out to dinner with dessert queen Alice Medrich was so much fun it didnâ€™t really matter where we went. Alice was in Toronto on book tour for her new cookie book â€śChewy, Gooey, Crispy, Crunchyâ€ť.Â Scarpetta is part of a mini chain from New York and is Torontoâ€™s first high end, celebrity chef restaurant and although we have lots of corporate style restaurants this did not, good or bad, have a Toronto vibe. Â Not to be missed are the braised shortribs with faro risotto, polenta with wild mushrooms and signature spaghetti with tomato sauce. Â Desserts were so â€śinterestingâ€ť they werenâ€™t delicious enough. My advice - skip dessert and have more appetizers. Service was great.
