Scarpetta Wins Our Miami Restaurant Poll of 1,000 Votes Cast

On June 1, in anticipation of our final ten countdown of Miami New Times' favorite dishes, we asked you to choose the restaurant that serves the best dish in Miami.

The poll was furiously tweeted by restaurants and readers who felt strongly about which place was their favorite.

The poll pitted some of Miami's best restaurants against each other.

The venues were chosen by Miami New Times staff as having the top ten dishes. Voting closed at 11:59 p.m. last night, and the results are in.

Scarpetta won with nearly one-third of the 977 total votes. The complete results are as follows:

Scarpetta, helmed by Food Network celebrity Scott Conant, is known for its beautiful Italian dishes done simply with fresh, local ingredients. This philosophy is best represented by the restaurant's signature item, a simple plate of spaghetti with tomato and basil ($24).

The restaurant also boasts a host of vegetarian dishes, which come in handy when your newly vegan sister visits. The vegetarian creamy polenta with fricassee of truffled mushrooms ($16) will satisfy even a carnivore.

We at New Times totally agree with your choice of restaurants -- we named Scarpetta's lamb agnolotti our top dish this year. To see what we had to say about it (and for a complete listing of all 100 dishes), click here.
